Veterans Treatment Court

Program Description

The Ninth Judicial Circuit participates in the Veterans Treatment Court program administered by the Ninth Judicial Circuit Court of Florida.

Veterans returning from combat may suffer from post-traumatic stress or have difficulty readjusting to civilian life. A veteran charged with certain crimes and who meets the program requirements may be eligible to participate in Veterans Treatment Court.

Veterans Treatment Court focuses on rehabilitation rather than incarceration and aims to properly diagnosis and treat mental health and substance abuse issues veterans sometimes develop. Defendants who are assessed and approved for this program are required to participate in ongoing assessments, counseling and attend frequent court hearings as part of their treatment plan.

Interested parties must submit a referral form directly to the Ninth Judicial Circuit Court Problem Solving Court office.
