Clinic Description

James J. Peters Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center, located in the Bronx, New York, provides behavioral health and social work services to veterans and military members. They can also offer referrals to alcohol or drug rehab, including medication-assisted treatment (MAT) programs.

Medication-assisted treatment is an evidence-based treatment that uses FDA-approved medication, such as methadone, buprenorphine, and naloxone, to address withdrawal symptoms, manage cravings, and reduce the risk of relapse. MAT also includes outpatient counseling so that clients can build a substance-free lifestyle that eventually doesn’t need the support of medication.

The VA also delivers a variety of other services, including individual and group counseling, addiction education, case management, medication management, life skills training, and relapse prevention. They also connect clients with social services such as educational, housing, and employment support and help with daily living essentials.

The VA accepts VA health insurance for service-connected care and a variety of health plans for non-service-connected care. These plans may include Cigna, Humana, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Beacon, and United Healthcare. Be sure to check with your insurer to verify out of network benefits and other coverage information.
