VETERAN TREATMENT COURT MENTORING

WHAT IS A VETERAN TREATMENT COURT?
 

Veteran Treatment Court is a problem solving court. It is a voluntary 12 month program for Veterans who are struggling with service-related addiction, mental health issues and/or other co-occurring disorders.

 

Veterans in the program will receive ongoing judicial and probation supervision, with input professionals led by a judge. The Court promotes sobriety, recovery, and stability through a collaboration with the VA, community-based treatment providers and support from a Veteran peer mentor.

The benefits of the program for the Veteran mentee:

  • Alternative sentencing options

  • Access to a comprehensive treatment plan through the VA  and/or community providers

  • Vet-to-Vet peer mentor program (ProVetus mentors)

  • Team of support and case management help increase your chances of success

  • Reduce criminal recidivism

  • Stabilize mental health and increase compliance with treatment

  • Facilitate participant sobriety

  • Improve access to VA benefits and services

  • Improve relationships and stabilize basic needs

CERTIFIED SPONSOR TRAINING INFORMATION

Training Time Committment- Training is conducted by our partner the ETS Sponsorship Program.  Mentor candidates will participate in three training sessions in order to obtain certification. Training events are virtual with assigned cohort groups. Typically, the sessions are about two hours long. Depending on an individual's schedule and when the training is offered, it may take a sponsor a month or two to complete the training and become certified.  As Covid 19 restrictions are lifted in lieu of the 3 session trainings a one-day session may be offered in select cities that can be attended in person or virtually.

Training is conducted virtually with a variety of day and night time time slots for CONUS participants. Training times and dates may be adjusted to accommodate OCONUS partners.  The schedule will be revisited and adjustments will be made to ensure the most optimal times/dates are selected.​
