Yes; the factor ‘in addition to’ does not change the number of the subject; for your info, the following (correct) structures may be helpful to understand the concept.

Tom goes to court
Tom and Dick go to court
Tom with Dick goes to court
Tom along with Dick goes to court
Tom together with Dick goes to court
Tom in addition to Dick goes to court
Tom as well as Dick goes to court
