Adult Drug Courts and Tribal Healing to Wellness Courts (2022-2024)

The Treatment Court Institute selects exemplary adult drug courts and tribal healing to wellness courts to serve as national models. For the upcoming 2025-2027 term, the Treatment Court Institute will manage adult drug mentor courts while the Tribal Law and Policy Institute will manage tribal healing to wellness mentor courts. There is no cost to participate, as this program is supported by the Bureau of Justice Assistance within the Office of Justice Programs at the U.S. Department of Justice.

Teams or individuals interested in starting a treatment court can watch the model in action, and established courts can learn new and innovative practices. Choose from an in-person visit, virtual visit, or professional one-on-one shadowing.

Complete the application telling us about you and/or your court program. Our staff will schedule a time with you to discuss further and plan your visit. All mentor court visitors are required to complete a brief online evaluation upon completion of the visit or shadowing. Based on feedback from the evaluation, our staff will determine what, if any, further training or technical assistance is required.
