The Rutherford County Recovery Court has just recently added a new Veterans Treatment Court to meet the specific needs of the men and women who have served our country and returned with challenges as a result of their experiences in difficult circumstances. The Rutherford County Veterans Treatment Court's goal is to give veterans a new chance at a stable and productive life. Through a judicially structured program, eligible veteran-defendants with substance dependency and/or mental illness, who are charged with felony or misdemeanor non-violent criminal offense(s), are furloughed to a specialized criminal court docket. Veterans are identified through evidence-based screening and assessments which includes a mental health evaluation, and an alcohol/substance abuse assessment. Veterans participating in this program are supervised by case managers assigned to assist the veteran with his or her specific plan of treatment. Judge Ben Hall McFarlin presides over the court.
The adult program has phases to complete.
