Helen Harberts

Throughout her nearly 20 years of work in the drug court field at the local, state and national level, Helen Harberts has challenged the status quo and encouraged the field to serve more participants, to provide greater continuum of care, to honor due process rights, and to seek greater outcomes. Her work has lasting value, from her insistence on partnering with the local Boys and Girls Club to provide additional opportunities to Juvenile Drug Court participants and their families, to her published works, and the perhaps thousands of drug court professionals she has trained throughout the years.
