Veterans Courts serve veterans struggling with addiction, mental illness and co-occurring disorders, according to the Pennsylvania Unified Judicial Court System website.

"These courts promote sobriety, recovery and stability through a coordinated response that involves cooperation and collaboration with the traditional partners found in Drug and Mental Health Courts, with the addition of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, and the Veterans' Benefits Administration," the website states.
