Call for Proposals – NADCP 25th Annual Training Conference
Deadline: 5 p.m. Eastern | Monday, October 15, 2018
The National Association of Drug Court Professionals (NADCP) will host its 25th Annual Training Conference from July 14-17, 2019, at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center just outside Washington, D.C. in National Harbor, Maryland. The NADCP conference is the world's largest on addiction, mental health and justice reform, drawing more than 5,000 attendees each year. As part of the conference, NADCP also convenes Vet Court Con, devoted exclusively to veterans treatment courts and the unique needs of justice-involved veterans. Additionally, this year's conference will again feature a component especially law enforcement personnel working both within and outside of treatment courts.
NADCP seeks conference session/workshop proposals that present best practices in service delivery, collaboration and justice programming that enhance outcomes for participants in treatment courts, including adult, juvenile, family and reentry drug treatment courts; DWI courts; tribal healing to wellness courts; and veterans treatment courts, as well as for law enforcement professionals facing individuals with behavioral health issues.
NADCP strongly encourages proposals that present research findings, feature data analysis and highlight evidence-based best practices. While we will accept and schedule sessions that cover a wide range of topics, we are especially interested in research-based presentations dealing with justice system reform, best practices, pretrial services, equity and inclusion, law enforcement, community supervision, jail-based treatment/services and long-term recovery.
