Welcome to Knox Recovery Court And Knox County Veterans Treatment Court

JFV09-2015

Knox Recovery Court’s special track for veterans, our Knox County Veterans Treatment Court (KCVTC), recently sent a team of 10 to Nashville to attend the Justice for Vets VTC Team training.  The team included the VTC Judge, DA representative, Defense counsel representatives, VTC Director, Veteran Mentor Coordinator, law enforcement, Veteran’s Justice Outreach Officer, treatment counselor, and probation officer.

 

Training topics included:

The 10 Key Components of Veterans Treatment Court

Development of Veterans Treatment Court Structure, Target Population, Entry Process, Phases and Court Requirements

Psychopharmacology, Combat Operational Stress Reactors, Drug Testing, and Responding to Participant Behavior

Community Supervision, Ethics and Confidentiality, and Sustainability

While the VTC has been following the 10 Key Components and applying much of what has been learned through the last 16 years of Recovery Court operation, new insights and practices are now being used to best deal with issues unique to veterans as a result of the training.

The KCVTC requires regular court appearances, as well as mandatory attendance at treatment sessions and frequent and random testing for substance use (for both drugs and alcohol).  Veterans respond favorably to this structured environment given their past experiences in the Armed Forces.  However, we realize a few will struggle and it is exactly those veterans who need a Veterans Treatment Court program the most.  Without this structure, these veterans will reoffend and remain in the criminal justice system.  The KCVTC is able to ensure they meet their obligations to themselves, the court, and their community.  The KCVTC offers these services to veterans who served in any branch of the military, regardless of discharge status.
