In June 2007, the National Association of Drug Court Professionals honored the Center for Court Innovation with its National Leadership Award. The Award, which recognized the Center’s efforts to “go to scale” with drug courts in New York state, was presented at the national drug court conference in front of an audience of more than 3,000. The National Leadership Award recognized New York's “tireless efforts to transform communities by fostering systemic change in the way addicted persons are treated in the justice system.” New York is one of the first states to take drug courts to scale, now boasting a drug court in each of its 62 counties and 190 altogether throughout the state. Also honored for New York’s efforts were Chief Judge Judith Kaye and the New York State Association of Drug Treatment Court Professionals.
