A new veterans treatment court has been created in the federal Western District of Kentucky stretching from Louisville to Paducah. The court is for former military service members who commit nonviolent federal crimes. 

Kentucky veterans suffering from substance abuse who are charged with crimes will soon be able to enter a treatment program through a new statewide partnership. The Veterans Treatment Court is starting in Louisville. It’'s a partnership by the statewide drug courts, Morehead State University and the veterans’ administration.
