Our Center is dedicated to improving the quality and effectiveness of care for Veterans with substance use disorders. We support VHA national efforts to address substance use disorders by leveraging administrative data to identify gaps in treatment, serving as a national resource for VHA providers, and developing real-world, practical solutions to issues faced by Veterans with substance use disorders and their providers.
- We develop, implement, evaluate, and disseminate best clinical practices and educational initiatives along the continuum of care for substance use disorders.
- We provide education and training in treatment of substance use disorders as well as consultation and technical assistance to program managers, medical center leadership, and VA Central Office on issues relevant to quality care of Veterans with substance use disorders.
- We conduct clinical, health services, and educational research to improve the health of Veterans with substance use disorders.
