Hummel Launches Veterans Intervention Strategy

BEND, OR -- Local veterans who suffer from service-related issues now have a specialized program. D-A John Hummel says the Veterans Intervention Strategy offers an opportunity to access treatment and resources for mental-health and substance abuse. Hummel says not to mistake this for a veteran’s treatment court. The program will help 20 vets who are given individualized plans and mentored by other vets during their recovery. The VIS is an inter-agency team involving the Deschutes County District Attorney’s Office, the Central Oregon Vet Center, the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office, Deschutes County Community Justice, Deschutes Defenders, and Kollie Law.
