VA/DoD Clinical Practice Guidelines and Clinical Support Tools

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and the Department of Defense (DoD) develop clinical practice guidelines for several psychological health conditions, substance use disorders, and related issues. Guidelines improve patient care by reducing variation in practice and systematizing best practices. The guidelines on this page are endorsed by the VA/DoD Evidence Based Practice Work Group.
