VA Healthcare-VISN 4
Veterans Justice Partnership
VISN 4’s Veterans Justice Partnership is a unique program that aims to get former service members the treatment they need as an alternative to incarceration. Working together with local courts, the VA connects Veterans with resources to help them combat the problems at the root of their legal troubles, such as behavioral health, substance abuse or other reintegration issues.
Each medical center in VISN 4 has staff dedicated to working with justice-involved Veterans, even if the local court system has not yet established an official Veterans Court. To learn more about the Veterans Justice program and how the VA can help you, contact your local Veterans Justice Partnership specialist listed below. These specialists are here to help.
