LATEST SENATOR TESTER
(Big Sandy, Mont.) - U.S. Senator Jon Tester today announced $325,000 to expand the Veterans Treatment Courts in Great Falls and enhance services for its participants. Veterans Treatment Courts provide an alternative to the traditional criminal justice system for former service members struggling with addiction, helping them address the underlying cause of their addiction and putting them on a path to recovery instead.
"Our service men and women risk everything to protect the people of this country and often endure wounds, both seen and unseen, as a result," Tester said. "We owe our veterans a chance at redemption and recovery, and that's exactly what Veterans Treatment Courts do. These courts have a proven track record of making a real difference in the lives of many men and women who served."
