Douglas County Veterans Treatment Court Graduates Three Participants

Tuesday, October 13, 2020

The Douglas County Veterans Treatment Court celebrated three graduations in Omaha on October 1, 2020, at the Douglas County Courthouse. For the Veterans Treatment Court graduates, the ceremony marks the completion of an intensive program of comprehensive mental health treatment, intensive community supervision, and full accountability. Veterans Treatment Court Judge James T. Gleason  presided over the ceremony.

Veterans Treatment Courts are an alternate route through the criminal justice system for nonviolent drug-related offenders which utilizes a specialized team process that functions within the existing court structure. The courts are designed to achieve a reduction in recidivism and substance use among individuals with substance use disorders. The court’s goal is to protect public safety and increase the participant’s likelihood of successful rehabilitation by utilizing validated risk and need assessments, early and individualized behavioral health treatment, frequent and random chemical testing, incentives, sanctions, and other rehabilitative and ancillary services.
