NADCP Hires ARK™ Project Director
Ashley Harron, J.D., Psy.D. Joins NADCP as the Associate Chief of Science, Policy & Law
May 13, 2013 – The National Association of Drug Court Professionals (NADCP) is proud to
announce Ashley Harron, J.D., Psy.D. as the Associate Chief of Science, Policy & Law.
Dr. Harron’s primary responsibility will be as the project director for NADCP’s Annals of
Research and Knowledge on Successful Offender Management project, known as ARK™.
Dr. Harron has extensive and unique expertise in research,
policy and substance abuse treatment. He recently
completed a rotation where he evaluated the operations and
efficacy of Drug Courts. In traditional clinical rotations, he
regularly worked with addiction, severe mental illness,
forensic assessments and with patients involved in the
criminal justice system.
“The blend of Dr. Harron’s diverse background in addiction treatment, substance abuse
research, mental health advocacy and Drug Courts makes him the right choice to lead the
effort in taking the ARK™ Project from conception to implementation,” said West
Huddleston, NADCP CEO.
“I am honored to join NADCP and feel privileged to be involved in such a worthwhile
cause at such a pivotal time,” said Dr. Harron. “The ARK™ Project represents an
unprecedented opportunity to implement an evidenced-based approach that saves not only
money, but lives. By working with the brightest in the field to create the gold standard
model for the treatment of addiction throughout the criminal justice system, we have the
chance for meaningful and practical reform.”
The ARK™ project, funded from a $1.4 million ONDCP grant, is the innovation of
NADCP CEO West Huddleston and Chief of Science, Law and Policy Douglas Marlowe,
J.D., Ph.D.. The ARK™ combines the best evidence-based practices into one model with
which offenders can be assessed and matched to treatment based upon their unique
addiction needs, criminogenic risks and stage within the criminal justice system.
Dr. Harron obtained his B.A. in Psychology and Communications from the University of
Washington and continued his studies at Widener University’s Institute of Graduate
Clinical Psychology outside of Philadelphia, PA. While there, he simultaneously earned a
Doctorate of Clinical Psychology and a Juris Doctorate from Widener School of Law. He
graduated cum laude and was awarded the President’s award in recognition of his high
scholastic achievement and potential for meaningful future contributions to the school, the
community, and the profession. Dr. Harron worked as a policy consultant for
Philadelphia’s Department of Behavioral Health, spearheading their recovery-oriented
Psychiatric Advance Directive program. Most recently, he completed an internship with the
Treatment Research Institute’s Law and Ethics section under renowned addictions
researcher David Festinger, Ph.D. where he evaluated the operations and efficacy of
Ashley Harron, J.D., Psy.D. can be reached at (703) 575-9518 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
