EAST END VETERANS TREATMENT COURT

 
General Information
Description of ProgramA Veterans Treatment Court/Track is a separate court calendar within an existing drug treatment or mental health court that provides veteran-defendants suffering from addiction, mental illness and/or co-occurring disorders with linkages to community-based services as well as local, state and federal agencies specializing in veteran's affairs. Similar to drug treatment and mental health courts, a Veterans Court/Track utilizes a team-centered approach to address the needs of veterans who find themselves involved in the criminal justice system. This approach involves the cooperation and collaboration of traditional stakeholders found in drug treatment and mental health courts with the addition of representatives from the The United States Department of Veterans Affairs, veterans support organizations and peer mentors.

Peer mentors are a critical component of the Veterans Court/Track. They are men and women who have previously served in our military's armed forces and volunteer their time to work with veterans in court. By virtue of the military experience, peer mentors provide veteran-defendants with a unique source of support and motivation as they navigate through the court process. Through the use of peer mentors,judicial monitoring, coordinated services and enhanced communication, the Veterans Court/Track seeks to provide veterans with immediate and intensive intervention so that they can successfully reintegrate into civilian life.
