The PodTASC: Promoting Healthy Communities Through Innovative Treatments Within Texas Specialty Court Programs

Texas Association of Specialty Courts

This is the official podcast presented by the Texas Association of Specialty Courts where we talk all things related to Texas specialty court programs. Episodes feature guest speakers with various specialty court experiences. We go deep on backgrounds and many characteristics on what it takes to operate a successful specialty court in Texas. The Texas Association of Specialty Court Courts (TASC) builds and strengthens Texas specialty courts through collaboration, advocacy and education. TASC was founded to: (1) Increase local and statewide political, media and community awareness of the existence and success of drug courts; (2) Support legislation authorizing funding for the operation of drug courts; and (3) Provide support for jurisdictions wanting to establish drug courts. The PodTASC is currently hosted by Liz Wiggins, the Communications Director on the TASC Board. read less
