Problem Solving Courts – Veterans Treatment Court
Veterans of the United States Military should be given every possible consideration by a court when a servicemember is facing a criminal charge. A good person should not lose his freedom or reputation because of a mistake and a veteran deserves a lawyer who will fight to protect them.
It is all over the news the problems with the Veteran’s Administration and how poorly our brave servicemen and women have been treated when seeking out medical care. It is not uncommon for our veterans to suffer from substance abuse and mental health problems. Veterans Courts were created to deal with the special problems of our veterans and active-duty military who have gotten caught up in the criminal justice system. This program is a hybrid of drug court, mental health treatment, and facilitating connections to many different organizations that support military veterans. These courts serve our military by giving them substance abuse and mental health treatment and access to a number of support agencies that will assist the veteran in dealing with his/her problem and moving on to lead a healthy life.
Problem-solving courts are important. They help the offender and are cost-effective to the taxpayers. These programs need to be supported and expanded. Everyone benefits from them.
