The Lake County Veteran’s Treatment Court [LCVTC] is a special division of the Lake County Court system. It is a Court-supervised program for those arrested in Lake County who have a mental illness, substance abuse, or other mental health condition related to their military service, who need treatment and other services, and who choose to participate in the LCVTC instead of having their case precede through the regular court process. The LCVTC is a problem solving and hybrid court meaning it will handle, felony cases, cases in pre-trial diversion and cases in which sentences have been imposed. There is a particularly high prevalence of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Major Depressive Disorder among combat and other veterans. The LCVTC recognizes the unique challenges facing these veterans and help link these veterans to services.
