True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost.

    All Rise: Justice For Veterans

    "Instead of throwing me in prison, veterans treatment court offered me the chance of a lifetime."Justice For VetsVeterans are less likely to be incarcerated than non-veterans. The number of veterans incarcerated in state and federal prison and local jail decreased between 2004 and 2012. Tragically, too many veterans are still coming into contact with the justice system due to treatable conditions.A growing number of veterans suffer from substance use disorders, mental health conditions (such as PTSD), and trauma (such as traumatic brain injury). These issues can be exacerbated by the loss of structure and camaraderie found in the military, and research continues to link substance use disorders with service-related mental illness.Such conditions increase the likelihood of involvement with the justice system. In fact, 81% of justice-involved veterans had a substance use disorder prior to incarceration, and 25% were identified as mentally ill.Veterans Treatment Courts offer a solution.
