The DWI Court Technical Assistance focuses on assisting operational DWI Court programs in the development and implementation of improved program practices leading to greater program effectiveness and increased long term participant success.

Technical assistance can range from office based telephone assistance and conference calls to regional training presentations and onsite visits by trained consultants. DWI Court programs can benefit from technical assistance in areas such as:

  • Program eligibility & client screening
  • Case processing
  • Drug testing
  • Sanctions & incentives
  • Effective treatment design & practices
  • Improved client retention
  • Relapse prevention & aftercare design
  • Team member turnover & training of new team members
  • Teambuilding & strategic planning

Technical assistance is not only designed for newer programs but can be beneficial for established DWI Court programs in various areas such as training of new team members, program review, teambuilding, and strategic planning. Technical assistance can range from office based telephone assistance and conference calls to regional training presentations and onsite visits by trained consultants. NCDC can also assist jurisdictions by providing faculty for local and regional DWI Court training sessions.

The full scope of the NCDC Technical Assistance effort would not be possible without support from NHTSA.
