Message from the President

Welcome to the website of the New York Association of Drug Treatment Court Professionals.

Chartered in 1997, the New York Association of Drug Treatment Court Professionals (NYADTCP) is a not-for-profit organization of judges, lawyers, court employees, treatment professionals, law enforcement officers and other professionals working in drug courts. The Association promotes and advocates for the establishment, funding and enhancement of drug courts and provides for the collection and dissemination of information, technical assistance and mutual support to the drug court professionals in the State of New York.

I encourage you to bookmark this page and refer to it often. The resources tab is a valuable resource for information relating to the work we do every day. I also invite you to submit news from your local courts to so we can add it our news and events tab.

I hope to see you at our annual training conference, Treatment Courts: Optimizing Outcomes through Evidence Based Strategies, March 7 – 9, 2018 in Saratoga Springs, NY. I am pleased to announce an all new format, offering more opportunities for learning and networking and a pre-conference workshop focusing on Family Treatment Courts.
Thank you for the work that you do every day and for your commitment to Treatment Courts in New York State.


Hon. James H. Cecile
Syracuse City Court
