Canadian Drug Treatment Courts

Canadian Association of Drug Treatment Court Professionals

The Canadian Association of Drug Treatment Court Professionals (CADTCP) is a non-profit corporation.

The CADTCP assists Drug Treatment Courts in efforts to reduce substance-related harm, substance abuse, crime and recidivism among non-violent persons who commit crime for the purpose of supporting their addiction or dependence on controlled substances.

It collects and disseminates information about the effectiveness of Drug Treatment Courts, including regular evaluations, and establishes public awareness of the effectiveness of Drug Treatment Courts. It provides a forum through which Drug Treatment Court and Problem Solving Court best practices can be developed, identified and shared, and encourages the establishment of other court-based intervention programs based on the underlying principles of Drug Treatment Court. The association also provides advice and submits recommendations to both governmental and non-governmental organizations on Drug Treatment Court issues.
