  • Existence and purpose of veterans treatment courts 
  • Experience of veterans treatment court participants
  • Importance and impact of veterans treatment courts
  • Ways to connect veterans and servicemembers to these programs

Most notably, the publication highlights three veterans who participated in veterans treatment courts. Their stories are inspiring, addressing the challenges they experienced and how they overcame them with the support of these programs. 

More than 600 veterans treatment courts are operating throughout the United States. These problem-solving courts can serve veterans and servicemembers experiencing a variety of legal and extra-legal (e.g., substance misuse, mental health) challenges. Veterans treatment courts welcome participants of all races, ethnicities, and genders.
