We love every chance to travel to the Northwest, even in January. Five teams joined us for our Foundational Training in Vancouver, WA. Teams from Alaska, Oregon and Washington state learned everything from the guiding principles of DWI courts to targeting high risk/high needs DWI offenders. We would like to send a special thanks to Judge Robert Anchondo and his El Paso, TX DUI Court team for hosting this training and providing us the opportunity to observe their program via Skype.
We love California in December so much that we invited five teams to join us for our Foundational Training in Newport Beach. Teams from Delaware, Arkansas, Idaho, Vermont, and California were on hand to learn everything from targeting high risk/high need DWI clients to learning to work together as a team. We would like to thank Judge Anderson and the Orange County Harbor Justice Center DUI Court for hosting the training and all their contributions that made this week a success.

Illinois' Second District Veterans Treatment Court is saving lives every day, but they wanted to do more. Thanks to the support of the Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility, NCDC traveled to Chicago this week to provide training on the most effective ways to treat repeat DWI offenders in veterans treatment court. When a community comes together to find innovative solutions to expand treatment and protect public safety, we All Rise!
We have learned nothing is ultimately effective without healthy human connection. In our first webinar you learned methods to support and learn continued growth and learning, gained better understanding of the key role treatment providers have on the team and with clients, and learned about the importance to staying with the research, even when it may not “feel” right.
Today, we will share with you not only a vison of an integrated understanding of addiction, recovery, alliance and mindful practice; but how to practically apply these concepts for better outcomes in your Treatment Courts.
Presented by Honorable Shaun Floerke and Julie Seitz, Director of the Alcohol and Drug Treatment Center Duluth, MN.
