CLAREMORE —

“I feel like I am doing really well and at a point to move on,” the woman said.
Most of the soldier’s time was spent in Germany helping patients at the military medical facilities.
The woman became addicted to heroine, which is why she became a participant in the Veteran’s court.
“I am very grateful I ended up in here,” she said. 
Other Veteran’s echoed similar stories at the hearing.
Approximately seven Veteran’s participated in the hearing.
The court has 15 participants and none have had the opportunity to complete the program, which can take up to three years.
Values, responsibility and tolerance are just a few of the lessons taught through the program. The Veteran’s have the ability to participate in group therapy as well as one-on-one counseling during the program.
