New England MIRECC

Our mission is to improve mental health treatments and access to services for dually diagnosed Veterans who have mental health and substance use issues.

The VISN 1 New England MIRECC focuses on Veterans with co-occurring substance use disorders and mental illnesses as well as related issues such as VA-compensated disabilities, homelessness, criminal justice histories, and medical co-morbidities. We aim to:

  • Better understand the prevalence and consequences of co-occurring substance use disorders and mental illness
  • Improve the treatment of dually-diagnosed Veterans by developing innovative new treatments
  • Devise more effective ways to deliver established treatments
  • Create more effective programs by training VA service providers in therapies with proven efficacy.
