Welcome to the Davidson

County Veterans Court!

Across the United States, Veterans Treatment specialty courts are working to meet the specific needs of the men and women who have served our country and are returning with challenges as a result of their experiences in difficult circumstances. Through a structured program administered by the court, eligible veterans can find stability and new purpose to be a contributor to the community.

 

Benefits offered to assist veterans include:

 

  • Mental health evaluation.
  • Alcohol /substance abuse assistance.
  • Supervision by client specialists assigned to work on their particular needs.

 

Growing numbers of veterans returning from service face specific mental health challenges as a result of fighting to defend our nation in an evolving and dangerous world. When we consider their unique condition, innovations in the methods by which we work to return them to full participation in society are crucial. The Davidson County Veterans Court is working to return the debt our nation owes.

What is a Veterans Treatment Court?

Veterans Treatment Courts are transforming the way veterans interact with the criminal justice system. The results have led to thousands of vets changing their lives for the better.
