About Veterans Affairs Medical Center Mental Health Service Chemical Dep Ctr

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. Today, the VA Mental Health Service Dependency Center -an extension of the Veterans Administration- operates within a network of healthcare facilities, offering a range of detox and substance abuse treatment services.

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. Once addiction develops, the rate of decline increases considerably as the drug’s effects take over your will and emotions.

Our staff of licensed professionals is committed to helping veterans and laymen alike break addiction’s hold off their lives. Regardless of how far along you are in the drug abuse/addiction cycle, the VA Mental Health Service Dependency Center is able to support your efforts to live a drug-free life.
