Serving Cocke, Grainger, Jefferson and Sevier Counties

A national movement has helped create over 200 Veterans Treatment Courts in the United States. In 2008, Honorable Robert Russell founded the Buffalo Veterans Treatment Court and the VTC movement. The program’s focus is to address specific issues and problems unique to our military veterans.
Building upon the success of our Drug Recovery Court, the mission of the Fourth Judicial District Veterans Treatment Court is to assist our nation’s veterans who come into contact with our criminal justice system to recover from drug and alcohol addiction and co-occurring mental health issues, such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Military Sexual Trauma (MST), and return them to their families and communities as healthy and productive citizens.
