The Washington State Association of Drug Court Professionals is committed and dedicated to furthering Drug Courts and Therapeutic Specialty Court models in the State of Washington. The WSADCP is committed to doing this through education and advocacy throughout the state of Washington. Drug courts provide an innovative approach to justice, linking the courts, treatment and community services to provide individuals with substance use disorders the accountability and support needed to achieve long-term change. Drug courts significantly reduce recidivism. They and other therapeutic courts transform lives, reconnect families, and make the community a safer place to live.
