What is a Veterans Treatment Program?

Veterans Courts are programs specifically designed for those service members with a service related injury or disorder that have been charged with a crime; many of whom are also struggling with substance use and/or drug use. The focus is placed on counseling and treatment of underlying conditions rather than on punishment.  The ultimate goal of the court is to provide a pathway within the criminal justice system to get our combat veterans’ new lives back on track.
