National Drug Court Month: May, 2011
Drug Courts: A Proven Budget Solution
National Drug Court Commencement Week: May 16-20
This May, Drug Courts throughout the nation will celebrate National Drug Court Month with the theme "Drug Courts: A Proven Budget Solution."
Our goal this year is for every member of the House of Representatives to attend a Drug Court graduation during National Drug Court Commencement Week, May 16-20.
During this week, all U.S. Representatives will be at home and will welcome opportunities to speak to constituents. We encourage all Drug Courts to invite their Representatives and other officials to attend a graduation. NADCP stands ready to assist you with this goal.
Each year, National Drug Court Month shines a light on the collective impact of Drug Courts on our justice system. This year, we will leave no doubt in the minds of local, state, and national policymakers that Drug Courts vastly reduce drug abuse, crime, and recidivism while saving money for taxpayers. Together we will show the nation that Drug Courts are a proven budget solution!
In the coming weeks, NADCP will release the annual National Drug Court Month Field Kit to help you plan your May activities.
