Organization Information

Mission Statement

The Lake County Veterans Treatment Court was established to provide alternative sentencing to offenders who are veterans of the United States Armed Services and received an honorable or less than honorable discharge.

Description

The camaraderie that exists between the men and women who have served in the armed forces is profound. Veterans treatment courts transform this bond into one of healing and empowerment.

A key component of the veterans treatment court program is the mentor program where veteran mentors provide peer-to-peer support to veteran participants. Veterans are better served by having a support system that includes someone who understands military experience and the different aspects of military culture. Mentors participate in a supportive relationship with participants to increase the likelihood that they will remain in treatment, attain and maintain sobriety and/or stability in their mental illness, maintain law-abiding behavior and successfully readjust to civilian life.
