Treating Veterans

At Freedom Detox, veterans undergo withdrawal management within a mixed treatment population. Although this is not only a veteran program, our experienced staff have a deep understanding of military trauma and are highly qualified to care for veterans who struggle with substance use disorders and co-occurring post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Receiving care alongside the general treatment population also helps veterans to develop skills for successfully navigating civilian life post-deployment. Veteran PTSD symptoms are similar to those shown by individuals with non-military trauma, and both frequently co-occur with substance use disorders.

We Can Help You Navigate the VA-CCN

Contact Us to Get Started

Freedom Detox is part of the Veterans Affairs Community Care Network (VA-CCN).

The VA-CCN is comprised of facilities that are approved to accept veteran benefits, giving veterans timely and more convenient access to behavioral healthcare. The Community Care Network uses industry-standard practices and guidelines to administer treatment and promptly pay for services.

In order to secure funding for your treatment through the VA-CCN, both a referral and an authorization from the VA are required. One way to obtain these is by visiting your home county VA office to meet with a primary care doctor. If you are seeking detox services, you can discuss using the Community Care Network with your doctor to attend Freedom Detox for treatment.

Let Us Help You

We understand that navigating the VA can feel overwhelming or frustrating, particularly when you are ready to take the first/next step in your recovery journey. If you’re a veteran who is not signed up for VA benefits or who needs assistance in navigating the Community Care Network referral process, please contact our admissions team. We can help you connect with the VA to start the process of getting the treatment you need.

Not all veterans are eligible for coverage via the VA-CCN. Freedom Detox is also in-network with most commercial insurance providers as well as VAYA Medicaid.
