During the first 60 days of residency at MCVET, each resident is assigned to a case manager and attends addiction recovery classes daily. They receive individual counseling and on-site assistance including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), substance abuse and assistance with family problems. They are also assigned to a benefits counselor who assists with VA entitlements. After 60 days, the resident may move to the Transtional Housing Program where they are required to attend life skills and substance abuse classes, Alcoholics/Narcotics Anonymous meetings, and work in conjunction with a case manager in the development of an Individual Service Strategy (ISS). The ISS is a long-range plan used as a tool to outline education, employment and housing goals and to document strategies for helping the resident stay drug free.
