Treatment Admissions Process for Veterans at American Addiction Centers

For some U.S. military Veterans, the transition from active duty to civilian life can be difficult and filled with challenges, including drug and alcohol misuse, fear, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), among others. While it can be difficult to ask for help, we at American Addiction Centers (AAC) are here to help you get the care you need. We offer specialized programs specifically for Veterans—and their families. In fact, since August 2021, AAC has helped more than 1,800 Veterans get treatment for substance use and mental health disorders. Don’t wait. Reach out and let one of our compassionate Admissions Navigators help you find the treatment program that best fits your needs.
You can also check your coverage online to see if your insurance covers rehab.

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.
