Coweta County Veterans Treatment Court is a voluntary, post-conviction, treatment based program that is offered to participants charged with felony and misdemeanor offenses. The Veterans Treatment 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.
The mission of the Veterans Treatment Court Program is to enhance public safety by diverting Veterans from the traditional criminal justice system by providing the necessary tools through treatment, judicial monitoring, and a coordinated community response which will lead them to productive and lawful lives.
