Veterans graduate from Santa Barbara County Veterans Treatment Court

The latest group of veterans graduated from the Santa Barbara County Veterans Treatment Court Friday.

The graduation was held at noon at the Veterans Memorial Building in Santa Barbara.

The treatment court is designed to help veterans and their families have a better life. The court works with justice partners, community-based organizations, and veterans services. The idea is to help members of the military once they've finished service. According to court workers, a lot of veterans return home and face issues with substance abuse and have psychological problems.

Friday's graduation ceremony was a kickoff event for the Veterans Day weekend.
