About the Ingham County Veterans' Treatment Court
The 30th Circuit, 54A, 54B, and 55th District Courts of Ingham County has established the Ingham County Veteran's Treatment Court (ICVTC). It will be held at the 54B District Court.
The ICVTC integrates alcohol and drug treatment and mental health services with supervision of each veteran's probationary case. The ICVTC will promote sobriety, recovery and stability through a coordinated response to the veteran's dependency on alcohol and other drugs and/or mental health issues.
Realization of these goals requires a team approach. It includes the cooperation and collaboration of traditional partners found in specialty courts with the addition of Veterans Affairs resources, support organizations for veterans and families and veteran mentors. The ICVTC has developed partnerships throughout the criminal justice system and veterans' system to create this court.
The cases include misdemeanors and selected lower severity felonies.
