What is VTP?
The Veterans Treatment Program (VTP) is a voluntary Three-Phased program which may encompass 12 to 18 months in duration. However, compliance with VTP and treatment may be mandatory for individuals who are currently on probation. Initial treatment may vary from inpatient to outpatient services, and will depend on the individual's most current clinical assessment. Participation will require a payment of $500 program fee throughout treatment progression. The participants could earn weekly incentives that may be applied towards the fee.
