The Veterans Treatment Court helps those who served our nation and who have been charged with a criminal offense and also struggle with drug and/or alcohol addictions, and/or mental health problems. Veterans Treatment Court is modeled after specialty drug courts, such as the one Community Service Council helped to create in Tulsa, which have proven to be effective in handling criminal cases of substance abusers, restoring lives and preventing future arrests.
Tulsa COURTS Program graduations are the last Friday of January, April, July, and October at 10:00 am at OSU Tulsa.
Veterans Treatment Court Mentor Trainings occur every 3rd Thursday of the month facilitated by Tammy Westcott, Program Director for Tulsa COURTS Program, at Fellowship Lutheran Church, 6727 S. Sheridan. Contact Tammy to attend.
