NEADCP Conference Presentation

About the New England Association of Drug Court Professionals (NEADCP):

The New England Association of Drug Court Professionals is a nonprofit consortium of drug treatment court professionals from six states (Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine). We exist to:

  • Address critical current and emerging issues confronting drug treatment courts through high-quality training and technical assistance.
  • Promote regional coordination to address challenges common in New England drug treatment courts and develop responsive pro-active policies and practices.
  • Provide a central forum and repository of resources relevant to the development, operation, and administration of drug treatment courts. 

Conference Goal:
To bring together Justice professionals, Treatment/Recovery specialists and community partners to identify practical solutions that will strengthen the New England response to addiction and facilitate the expansion of Specialty Courts. 

Participants will be able to:

  • Discuss State and Federal Drug Courts and other Specialty Courts and evaluate a continuum of responses to the opioid crisis including Aftercare planning. Participants will learn how to apply the information to specific needs.
  • Discuss effective drug court cognitive models and be familiar with responses to trauma.
  • Identify recovery systems of care, including Recovery Coaching, as an enhancement to other treatment modalities.
  • Engage with the medical community and other disciplines including law enforcement and community groups.
  • Understand how to improve case outcomes using Evidence Based Practice and case management tools in introductory and advanced drug court operations.
  • Increase professional development through networking opportunities.
  • Promote peer and expert exchanges to provide support to Drug Courts and other Specialty Courts.
