- Substance Abuse Treatment
First established during the Civil War, the Veterans Health Administration built the first federal hospitals for the purpose of treating the nation’s armed forces.

Drug and alcohol addiction has reached epidemic proportions, nationwide. The further along a drug or alcohol problem progresses, the greater the damage done to your quality of life.
