"Leave No One Behind"

Veterans Village of San Diego Rehabilitation Program

VETERANS REHABILITATION CENTER is a 165 bed state-licensed drug and alcohol rehabilitation center that serves men and women military veterans.

The leading causes of homelessness among veterans are substance use disorders and behavioral health and wellness issues.

  • Substance use disorder is a chronic relapsing disease that results from the prolonged effects of alcohol/drugs on the human brain.
  • It is a disease not much different from other chronic diseases like diabetes, hypertension, asthma or cancer.
  • Unfortunately, there is a wide gap between the scientific facts and public perceptions.
  • Many, perhaps most, people see drug abuse and addiction as social problems, and that addiction is caused by a “lack of will power.”
  • However, we know that substance use disorders and addiction are more a health problem than social problem.
  • Like diabetes, hypertension, asthma and cancer, addiction cannot be cured, but it can be treated and managed.

VVSD provides intensive, residential rehabilitation programs targeting substance use disorders, post-traumatic stress (PTS) and other behavioral health issues, chronic relapse and other personal and family issues that prevent veterans from regaining self-sufficiency.

VVSD programs are highly structured and are tailored to meet individual needs. Residents in our facilities receive a host of integrated services, including:

  • Comprehensive Clinical Assessments
  • Individual and Group sessions
  • Case Management
  • Alcohol and other Drug Education and Counseling
  • Complementary Alternative Therapies


Veterans Village of San Diego connects with America’s veterans to overcome their homelessness and related challenges, creating lives of dignity and fulfillment.
