Following an emotional visit to the Philadelphia Veterans Treatment Court, Actor Dulé Hill penned a powerful essay for CNN.com on why he supports these critical programs.
In it he writes:
For too long, this country has equated justice with punishment. By upholding the enduring, absolute value of every human, treatment courts are helping to change our national perspective on what it means to serve justice. There are more than 350 of these veteran-specific treatment courts across the United States, but that number falls far short of reaching every veteran in need.
As we mark the 10th anniversary of these life-saving programs, and we commit to reducing the pain and suffering caused by the opioid crisis, we must double down on programs proven to work. Programs like veterans treatment courts.
