Women's Health - Addiction Treatment Program
About Addiction Treatment Program
The Addictions Treatment Center of the Seattle Division is pleased to provide a unique program designed for women Veterans experiencing difficulties related to drug or alcohol use. Addictions treament is one of two tracks within the Women's Trauma and Recovery Center. The other track is the Women's Trauma Recovery Program.
Who We Serve
The center serves women Veterans who are interested in changing their patterns of drug and alcohol use. Most women we serve also struggle with other difficulties, such as posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depressive disorders, eating disorders, and gambling problems. Therefore, our program is designed to assist with these difficulties at the same time as providing assistance for substance-related difficulties.
• Care coordination
Our staff is made up of mostly female mental health providers experienced in delivering the most current treatments for substance-related problems, including cognitive, behavioral, and motivational treatments as well as abstinence-support medications.
If you are interested in entering treatment, the first step is to call (206) 764-2457 to schedule an appointment. During this first appointment, a female staff member will meet with you and help identify your treatment needs prior to admission to the program.
If you are having thoughts of harming yourself, you can also contact the VA National Suicide Hotline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) and press "1" for Veterans.
