The National Association of Drug Court Professionals (NADCP) held its 17th annual Drug Court Training Conference this summer and several area drug court team members were in attendance. The world's largest conference on addiction and the criminal justice system was also the largest in NADCP's history. There were over 3,600 state and federal justice leaders, celebrities, judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys, clinicians, police, probation officers, veterans, business owners, Drug Court graduates and family members from around the world in attendance. Drug Court professionals attended over 250 hours of educational seminars during the four-day training in Washington, D.C.
