In preparation for our final webinar in 2013 – “Raising the Bar in FDC – A Look at FDC Guidelines” set for September 11th, we recommend that you view the following video of Dr. Doug Marlowe presenting on the newly released Drug Court Standards – Volume 1. This took place during the closing session at the NADCP Annual Training Conference in July 2013. Dr. Marlowe outlines the rationale for developing standards for drug courts and why it was important to move from the 10 Key Components to codifying policies, procedures, and operations for the field. You may wonder how the FDC guidelines and the 10 Key Components and Best Practice Standards for adult drug courts are related and different. We plan to address this and other questions you may have during our webinar. Please register today by clicking here.
You can also start a discussion on FDC Guidelines or Best Practice Standards for drug courts on our new FDC forum page.
