Veterans Affairs

Azure Acres Recovery Center is proud to serve United States military veterans who are seeking substance use and co-occurring mental health treatment through the Department of Veterans Affairs Community Care Network. 

What Is the Community Care Network?

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Community Care Network (CCN) was established in 2018 to provide veterans with greater access to the healthcare they deserve.  

The creation of the CCN directly connects the VA with thoroughly vetted, high-quality treatment providers in communities across the country. This allows veterans to receive care from both VA facilities and authorized providers close to home. 

The CCN is divided into six regional networks covering all U.S. states and territories, which are developed and administered by third-party administrators Optum Public Sector Solutions Inc. and TriWest Healthcare Alliance. 

TriWest Healthcare Alliance

TriWest Healthcare Alliance has been serving veterans and members of the military community since its founding in 1996. 

In addition to administering the Department of Defense TRICARE program for active-duty military members, TriWest Healthcare Alliance administers Regions 4 and 5 of the Department of Veterans Affairs Community Care Network. 

Region 4 includes 12 states in the western continental United States and Hawaii, while Region 5 includes Alaska.  

Navigating the CCN

Although the Community Care Network was created to make care coordination for veterans simpler and less confusing, we recognize that finding appropriate behavioral health treatment can often feel overwhelming. 

The caring and compassionate staff at Azure Acres Recovery Center is here to provide the guidance and support you need when seeking professional help through the CCN for addiction and a co-occurring mental health concern. 

Our highly experienced team members can answer any questions you might have about the policies and procedures of the CCN, ensuring that you receive the benefits for which you are fully eligible. 

If you have any questions about receiving care through the Veterans Affairs Community Care Network, please reach out to us directly to speak to a knowledgeable member of our team.
