Description
The Program offers substance abuse services to veterans and civilians. Substance abuse is only one of multiple issues facing the client. Therefore, The Program will provide treatment for all of the client's presenting co-occurring issues and sober living housing. The large majority of clients are 30-day inpatient rehabs referrals.

We feel the environment we offer prospective clients is superior to other facilities. Some offerings we provide are not offered by the majority of others specifically for veterans:
- 24-hour drug and alcohol mental health treatment
- Semi and Private Rooms
- On site mental health care
- State licensed DUI class on site
- On site laundry rooms
- Flat Screen Televisions
- Computers with Internet Access
- Housekeeping, Maintenance, and Dietary Staff
Budget
$100,000

Each of the above provides referrals that have been vetted and wish treatment, transitional housing, education, rehabilitation, and permanent housing. Currently 50% of the target to zero homelessness initiative is not being met, not due money, but due to lack of houses, apartments, rooms and beds being available. In most instances' funds are available from the above list directly to landlords and service providers.
