The National Association of Drug Court Professionals (NADCP) National Drug Court Institute announced the release of Painting the Current Picture: A National Report on Drug Courts and Other Problem-Solving Court Programs in the United States on August 8.
Funded by the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), in partnership with the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), U.S. Department of Justice, this comprehensive report compiles data from two national surveys of all US states, commonwealths, districts and territories for years 2008 and 2009.
“Painting the Current Picture contains a valuable snapshot of Drug Court and Problem-Solving Court operations,” said West Huddleston, NADCP CEO and co-author of the report. “There is a wealth of information contained in this report, and the data makes it abundantly clear why Drug Courts and Problem-Solving Courts continue to thrive despite the difficult economic times with which we are now faced. This report is an important contribution to state and national justice reform efforts and I urge every justice professional, policymaker, community leader, legislator, educator, and concerned citizen to order or download a copy today.”
