The Baldwin County Veterans Court Program is only for men and women who are currently serving or who have previously served in the Armed Forces of the United States. This includes service in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, National Guard and Reserve. The Veterans Court is a court-supervised program coupled with intensive treatment and supervision for criminal offenders. The Veterans Court is designed specifically for persons who have criminal charges pending, and those charges likely relate to substance abuse or mental health issues.
This program is a privilege not a right. It is a voluntary program which includes regular court appearances before the designated Veterans Court judge. It also involves drug and alcohol treatment, random drug testing, support group meetings, vocational or job counseling, educational classes and community supervision. The Veterans Court program has three phases. Participants must complete all phases successfully to graduate. The program requires a minimum of 12 months participation.
