Tribal Healing to Wellness Courts are innovative implementations of the drug court model, which have been used in native communities across the United States. The drug court movement began in the 1980s and is a criminal justice reform movement meant to better serve those struggling with substance abuse through a court setting. Different native communities modified the drug court model to address severe alcoholism and related crimes in Indian Country through a restorative and non-adversarial approach.
