Yavapai County Courts Honoring Those Who Served
With Veterans Day around the corner, we as a community will pause to honor those men and women who answered their call to duty. This Veterans Day we must ensure that our gratitude is carried to all those that served, including those members that continue to struggle with day-to-day life. Research has shown that one in five post 9/11 veterans struggle with post-traumatic stress disorder and one in six have problems with substance abuse. Sometimes these struggles land veterans in the hands of the criminal justice system. When that happens, Veteran Treatment Courts step in to ensure that those veterans receive the structure, treatment and compassion they need to get their lives back on track.
