Monterey County Superior Court, in collaboration with the Monterey County Bar Association and with funding from a Recidivism Reduction Fund Court Grant and the National Drug Court Institute, is proud to present a FREE one-day educational opportunity, the VET COURT SYMPOSIUM, in the Monterey Peninsula area on Friday, May 13, 2016.

Veterans Treatment Courts (VTCs) are a relatively new type of problem-solving court. The first VTC was implemented in Buffalo, NY in 2008, serving military veterans utilizing a combination of several problem-solving court models.. The veteran’s court model is based on drug treatment and/or mental health treatment courts. Substance abuse or mental health treatment is offered as an alternative to incarceration. Typically, veteran mentors assist with the programs.
