Veterans Addiction Recovery Program

Veterans Addiction Recovery Program

Established in 2013, our residential substance abuse treatment program for homeless veterans and dually-diagnosed homeless veterans prepares them for successful transition back into the community. Our highly professional, licensed CADC staff provides evidence-based, intensive therapeutic and rehabilitative services in a residential therapeutic setting.

This grant per diem, 10-bed program offers veterans a safe and stable place to live for up to 90 day while in treatment, as well as vocational training and community employment training to ensure that veterans enter and stay in the workforce. All clients are referred from the Robley Rex VA Medical Center in Louisville.

Services include intensive life-skills training, alcohol and drug abuse education and treatment, educational remediation (including GED preparation), and, when applicable, job readiness, job skills training, and employment assistance. Veterans with a dual diagnosis will also receive access to diagnosis-specific specialty groups, VA mental health care providers, and recovery-focused psychoeducation.

In addition, our staff members maintain regular contact with VA personnel regarding program participants. VA staff are invited to participate in case review meetings, during which the program's staff reviews the veteran's progress. The collaboration include goals for each veteran, such as obtaining or increasing income; securing safe, affordable housing; establishing a peer support network, and establishing access to VA mental health/substance abuse disorder treatment.
