Program Description

The Problem:

An estimated 60% of incarcerated veterans struggle with a substance use disorder. These veterans have complex needs that must be addressed with appropriate services and through a special problem-solving court. However, at times, veterans may not be eligible for specialty courts due to the lack of having a felony charge or having an other-than-honorable discharge.

Our Solution:

Address all veterans’ complex needs through peer services, trained case management, and psychological evaluations, no matter their discharge.

How We Do it:

Brooklyn Misdemeanor Veterans Treatment Court provides in-depth assessments, screenings, case management, and connections to community-based services for veteran misdemeanants. Regardless of their discharge status, they are connected to the substance abuse, mental health, housing, and health care services they need. For program participants with a history of trauma and/or substance abuse, the evidence-based practice Seeking Safety is implemented.  In addition, the veterans have access to same-day, on-site neuropsychological assessments, in-depth trauma screenings, and peer mentoring.
