In Queens NY crimnal court what is the difference between parts QTC- Queens Treatment Court and QDDN?

New York, NY |

Not exactly sure what QDDN stands for... I think it is Queens Diversion ?? I know someone who goes to the QTC part and is in a TASC program for drugs and has to report to QTC approx. every 3 weeks. Recently a friend of mines daughter plead guilty to a drug charge and has to report to the QDDN part, but her court date is two months out, she also has to go to TASC. Just trying to understand why she reports to QDDN and not QTC.

Her attorney is in the best position to provide her with this type of information.


The Queens Treatment Court (QTC) is a drug court program for first-time nonviolent felony drug offenders who are arrested in Queens County , New York. QDDN sounds like a criminal part of the court in Queens, but I can't say if it is a particular part dedicated to drug diversion, though it may likely be. It is difficult to say why she is in one program as opposed to another, but there may be varying criteria. You should speak to her attorney since s/he is part of the TASC program function.
