Silver Ridge accommodates both veteran and non-veteran midlife adult clients who are struggling with substance use disorders. Although Silver Ridge is not a veterans-only program, our staff members understand military trauma as well as the unique difficulties veterans face and are equipped to care for veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Attending mixed population groups alongside non-veteran clients can be beneficial for veterans in recovery, helping them to develop skills for re-integrating into civilian life after the military. Veteran PTSD symptoms are similar to those shown by individuals who have experienced non-military trauma, and the same treatment modalities can be applied.
Silver Ridge is proud to be part of the Veterans Affairs Community Care Network (VA-CCN).
The VA-CCN is a network of facilities that are pre-approved to accept veteran benefits for behavioral healthcare treatment, giving vets faster and more convenient access to care. The Community Care Network (CCN) uses industry-standard guidelines to administer treatment and pay for services.
In order to secure funding for your treatment through the VA-CCN, both an authorization from the VA and a doctor’s referral are required. One way to obtain these is by visiting your home county VA office to meet with a primary care doctor. Talk to your doctor about getting a referral to access the CCN for treatment at Silver Ridge.
When you’re ready to take the next step in your recovery journey, it can feel overwhelming or frustrating to navigate the VA to access your benefits. Please contact out admissions team if you’re a veteran who is not signed up for VA benefits or who needs assistance with the CCN referral process.
At Silver Ridge, we make it a priority to get our veterans the treatment they need and deserve. If you are unsure how to access your veteran benefits or need help with the process, reach out to the admissions team at Silver Ridge. Our admissions specialists have expertise in navigating the VA-CCN system as well as extensive experience in working with veterans and the VA.
Not all veterans are eligible for coverage via the VA-CCN, unfortunately. Silver Ridge is in-network with most commercial insurance and accepts self-pay.
