How AAC and the VA Offer Rehab for Veterans
As a chosen community care partner of the VA, American Addiction Centers provides treatment you can trust.
AAC: Authorized Community Care Network Provider
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) recognizes the importance of mental health and substance abuse treatment for Veterans. However, they also know that there are certain circumstances in which they may not be able to provide the necessary services or provide them in a timely manner. In these scenarios, they utilize treatment providers in the community to bring care to Veterans who need it. Eligible Veterans will be able to receive this private community care at the same rate they would pay for VA services.1
At Laguna Treatment Hospital in Orange County, CA, we are an authorized community care provider, working with the VA to ensure Veterans receive lifesaving addiction and mental health treatment. Laguna, along with our 7 other rehab facilities across the country, has a specialized treatment program for Veterans.
The VA holds community care providers (CCPs) to the highest standards, ensuring that Veterans get the quality care they deserve. All potential CCPs must go through a rigorous credentialing process to receive the VA’s endorsement as a quality treatment resource.2 As a chosen community care partner of the VA, American Addiction Centers provides treatment you can trust.
We Are Committed to Serving Veterans
American Addiction Centers welcomes Veterans into any of our facilities, and has community care providers located in several states across the country, including California, Nevada, New Jersey, Texas, Florida, Rhode Island, and Mississippi.
At these facilities, we offer our Salute to Recovery program, a safe place where Veterans can come together to share their experiences and begin their journey to sobriety among other patients and staff members who are Veterans, too.
Topics covered in the program are specifically tailored to the needs of the Veteran population and include:
- Post-traumatic responses.
- Military culture.
- Veterans’ needs in recovery.
When you choose the Salute to Recovery program, you’ll receive the benefits of private treatment combined with the Veteran-specific care you’d expect from the VA.
