Convening, Collaborating, Connecting: Courts as Leaders in the Crisis of Addiction

National Judicial Opioid Task ForceThis report from the National Judicial Opioid Task Force (NJOTF) provides state and federal policymakers and state court colleagues with information on the lessons learned from the NJOTF, established by the Conference of Chief Justices and the Conference of State Court Administrators. Since its inception, the task force has developed practical information, educational resources, tools, and best practice recommendations for state court judges, court administrators, and numerous partners and stakeholders. This report thus shares the recommendations, tools, best practices, and examples of successful programs so that state courts can serve as effective partners in the management and eventual end to the addiction crisis.
