What We Do

Substance Use Disorder Treatment (SUD-C) Services at the Battle Creek VA are patient-centered and recovery-oriented— designed to allow individuals to participate in an individualized program while continuing to live independently in their own community. Veterans who are working, going to school, or fulfilling other obligations are able to participate in outpatient substance use disorder services while managing their own schedules.

Individual therapy is also available for Veterans who are participating in SUD-C programming. Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP) is available for Veterans wanting a focused and comprehensive treatment regimen, but for those that need less intense treatment, other options are available. Relapse Prevention groups are available for Veterans who wish to continue building their early recovery skills and to address issues that can arise in early recovery, as well as formulate and implement a relapse prevention plan.
