Program Description

Many veterans are known to have a warrior’s mentality and often do not address their treatment needs for physical and psychological health care. Often those who are referred to the Veterans Accountability and Treatment Court (VTC) are homeless, helpless, in despair, suffering from alcohol or drug addiction, and others have serious mental illnesses.

Their lives have been spiraling out of control. Through this program, the veteran is offered the opportunity to regain stability in their lives, employment for the employable, housing for the homeless, and to have their families strengthened.

 

Our mission is to successfully rehabilitate veterans by diverting them from the traditional criminal justice system, and providing them with the tools they need to lead a productive and law-abiding lifestyle.

Our goal is to increase public safety by reducing recidivism; provide better mental health, alcohol and drug treatment through the VA; turn tax burdens into tax payers; and provide intensive case management and structure to the veteran participants.
