Overview

Queens Misdemeanor Veterans Treatment Court (QMVTC)

QMVTC offers substance abuse treatment as an alternative to incarceration for nonviolent felony drug offenders arrested in Brooklyn, New York. By offering court monitored treatment, QMVTC strives to break the damaging and costly cycle of addiction, crime and incarceration.

The QMVTC Part is unique due to its specialized screening process which affords a greater number of people the opportunity to receive drug treatment services through the criminal justice system. In addition, our enhanced screening process has sparked specialized programming for the adolescent population. Our case managers ensure that all participants, particularly our adolescents, receive the appropriate treatment services that are matched to both age and specific developmental treatment needs.

What is QMVTC

QMVTC is a special courtroom in the Queens Criminal Court. It is a program for first time non-felony offenders arrested in Queens, who face non-felony drug charges and who also abuse drugs. Instead of jail or probation, QMVTC will help you enter and stay in a drug or alcohol treatment program. The QMVTC program includes regular court appearances and supervision by the QMVTC judge.

The amount of time you spend in QMVTC will depend on the crime you were originally charged with, your criminal history, your plea and your individual progress in treatment. Most people will spend anywhere from one to two years in the QMVTC program.
