Veterans Transitional Treatment Program - Lexington
Volunteers of America's Veterans Transitional Treatment Program (VTTP) is a licensed residential therapeutic treatment setting for up to 24 homeless male veterans who have been diagnosed with a substance use disorder. Veterans who were either honorably or other than honorably discharged from military service are eligible to receive services.
This innovative and highly successful program educates clients on the disease of addiction along with teaching basic life skills. Treatment is provided by Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselors (CADCs), Licensed Professional Clinical Counselors (LPCCs), and a board-certified Registered Nurse (RN). Clients receive individual and group counseling, attend psychoeducational groups and Twelve-Step support group meetings and receive referrals for GED and/or vocational and career development. Other services include intensive in-house PTSD training and support, weekly art therapy and an in-house culinary arts training program with coursework for veterans to obtain a state Food Handler Certificate.
Many of the men in the later stages of the program are employed and working toward securing permanent housing of their own. Veterans may live in this program for up to two years and be fully supported as they work their way back to sobriety and economic independence.
Veterans Transitional Treatment Program is funded by grants allocated from the Kentucky Department of Veteran Affairs and the U.S. Veterans Administration Grant and Grant per Diem program.
