Additionally, the Army's Substance Use Disorder Clinical Care (SUDCC) program, formerly known as ASAP, uses a multi-disciplinary approach to treat and provides patients the resources and support they need to overcome the challenges of illicit drug use, prescription medicine and alcohol abuse. SUDCC is co-located with the Behavioral Health Clinic.
