Kanawha County is establishing a special court for military veterans.

Sheriff's Sgt. Brian Humphreys says the county's adult drug court will offer a separate track for veterans. He says the court will work with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to divert veterans into rehabilitation programs.

The Kanawha County Veterans Treatment Court will open with a ceremony Thursday in the Old County Courthouse in Charleston.

There are similar courts serving at least seven other West Virginia counties.
