Treatment Admissions Process for Veterans at American Addiction Centers
What is the Treatment Admissions Process for Veterans?
AAC and the VA Referrals Process
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) recognizes the importance of timely and convenient mental health and substance misuse treatment for Veterans.1
Through the MISSION Act, the VA allows eligible Veterans, who need treatment but cannot access treatment at a VA facility, to find the help they require from non-VA providers in the VA’s community care network.1 Community care providers are medical and mental health professionals outside the VA healthcare system who are permitted to render services to Veterans through the Community Care program.2 AAC is part of the VA’s community care network.
