Veteran Treatment Courts in Texas

What is a Veterans Treatment Court? JusticeForVets.org has a well-written page to answer this, but their page doesn't provide a concise answer. The American Legion offers the following

"The bonds of military service run deep. Veterans have many shared experiences not common among civilians. Research suggests that traditional community services may not be adequately suited to meet the distinct needs of veterans in the criminal justice system.

In Veterans Treatment Courts, those who served in our nation’s Armed Forces go through the treatment court process with their fellow veterans and are connected to the federal, state and local services that are uniquely designed for the distinct needs that arise from military service."
