ABOUT VA ILLIANA HEALTHCARE SYSTEM
The VA Illiana Healthcare System (VAIHS) of Danville, Ill., roughly 40 miles east of the city of Champaign, offers a comprehensive range of inpatient and outpatient services for veterans seeking assistance for mental health challenges.
One of just 97 (15.3 percent) of facilities in the state dedicated exclusively to Veterans, the VAIHS runs a 29-bed inpatient psychiatric unit for veterans experiencing crises, an “outpatient clinic without walls” for those living within 50 miles of the facility, and an intensive outpatient program (IOP) that runs five days a week for six weeks.
In addition to its main facility in Danville, the VAIHS runs four community-based outpatient clinics. Their locations: Decatur, Mattoon, Peoria, and Springfield.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Mental health services at the VA Illiana Healthcare System (VAIHS) consist of consultation, evaluation, and treatment for depression/sadness and anxiety, self-harming behavior, posttraumatic stress (PTSD), anger management, family issues, stress from medical problems, substance use, and work-related issues. Programming within the 29-bed, locked unit is individualized, consisting of individual and group therapy and 24-hour monitoring and nursing supervision.
For those seeking a therapeutic recovery-oriented environment, the VAIHS runs a Psychosocial Residential Rehabilitation Treatment Program (PRRTP) that includes separate tracks for severe mental illness, substance use disorder (SUD), vocational assistance, homeless, and health maintenance.
Another program, VAIHS’ Mental Health Intensive Case Management Program (MHICM) treats veterans within 50 miles of the facility in need of medication management, crisis intervention, education, advocacy, and support. Participants of MHICM also spend time developing their social skills, budget management, and other important, everyday skills and strengths.
Other programs include a suicide prevention program and a hotline that’s available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and, available at 65.7 percent of facilities statewide, a six-week intensive outpatient program (IOP) that serves as an alternative to a 12-step treatment approach. The group offers both individual and group therapy and is focused on relapse prevention, generating positive self-esteem, and developing one’s problem-solving skills and assertiveness.
As a facility, the VAIHS is led by a board-certified physician and a nurse executive; treatment teams are made up of a psychiatrist, social worker, and nurse.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
There is currently no information provided by the VA facility regarding the living arrangements and related offerings of its 29-bed, locked unit.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
While Rehabs.com has yet to receive any feedback from former clients of the facility, the VAIHS has mostly positive feedback and overall ratings of 4.1 out of five stars based on the opinions of 164 Facebook users (where the VA can manage reviews) and 4.3 out of five stars based on 35 Google reviews.
Of these, many described the staff and doctors as “smart and caring and professional,” expressing gratitude for the timely, courteous care they received. Others, however, felt the facility was only effective when clients asserted themselves. “I have found that unless you stay on top of the VA in Danville they will do nothing for you,” G.T., one of a handful of reviewers who shared this sentiment, wrote.
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
The sole respondent of a Rehabs.com survey as of this writing gave the VA facility - which they referred to as “okay” - four out of five stars in indicating how likely they’d recommend the program as well as for its accommodations, visitor policy, and exercise and leisure options. “Very well controlled with in and out procedures. They failed to check blood alcohol content,” the loved one added.
The VA facility accepts private health insurance, along with just 65.6 percent of facilities in Illinois.
