Several jurisdictions across the United States have created specialized Veterans Courts, which employ a drug court-adapted therapeutic approach to funnel justice system-involved veterans to counseling and support services that are closely monitored by the court.

This report seeks to address the knowledge gap in this area through an examination of 2,102 recently booked ...
