The National Drug Court Resource Center’s (NDCRC) mission is to equip treatment court practitioners with an array of resources relevant to the field. Since October 2019, the NDCRC has been housed in the University of North Carolina Wilmington Social Science and Applied Research Center (UNCW SSARC) in Wilmington, North Carolina. Their work focuses on providing treatment court professionals with the information needed to design and implement programs that align with best practice standards, expand and enhance court operations, as well as collect and analyze program data. NDCRC resources are featured on the website and include operational materials organized by court type, seminal readings for treatment court stakeholders, calendar of professional development opportunities, moderated discussion board for all treatment court professionals, and more.
Developed in partnership with the Bureau of Justice Assistance, Treatment Courts Online is their library of training videos for treatment court practitioners, offering free lessons on the latest research and evidence-based practices. Each online course includes lessons presented by experts in the field, virtual site visits to model courts, and interviews with frontline practitioners.
