VA CCN Drug Rehab in New Jersey

Drug & Alcohol Addiction Treatment Using VA CCN Insurance

If you’re a veteran of military service, you have a higher-than-average chance of experiencing substance abuse or addiction. To get help for these problems, you can turn to the Veterans Administration (VA). This federal agency is responsible for meeting a range of veterans’ needs, including the need for substance treatment. However, the VA doesn’t always provide treatment directly. Instead, you may need to call on the services of the agency’s Community Care Network (CCN).

The VA CCN makes use of non-government facilities to provide veterans with their required healthcare services. To access it, you must know how to follow its detailed guidelines. In addition, you must find a provider who accepts veterans under the terms of the VA CCN. 

For a VA CCN alcohol rehab or VA CCN drug rehab in New Jersey, call SOBA New Jersey. We feature the kinds of services most veterans need to recover from the effects of substance abuse and addiction. We can also help you address other mental health concerns common to veterans with substance problems.

Veterans and Substance and Mental Health Problems

Military service can take its toll on the well-being of men and women from all walks of life. That’s true whether you:

  • Directly or indirectly experience combat during your time in the military
  • Never see combat or serve in a combat zone

For roughly one in 10 veterans who seek help from the VA, the aftermath of service includes a diagnosable substance problem. These problems, known as substance use disorders (SUDs), often meet the definition of clinical addiction. They may also fall into the category of serious, non-addicted abuse of drugs or alcohol. In addition, the symptoms of an SUD may span the spectrum of addiction and substance abuse. What’s more, a significant percentage of veterans with SUDs are also affected by PTSD or another serious mental illness. 

Among both men and women veterans, alcohol-related problems are more common than drug-related problems. Men have a higher rate of exposure than women. Your SUD risks also go up if you’re under the age of 25 and/or aren’t married.

The Basics of the VA Community Care Network

How Does VA CCN Health Insurance Work?

The Community Care Network was designed by the Veterans Administration to provide additional healthcare resources for veterans. Why are these resources needed? Millions of former servicemen and servicewomen qualify for VA treatment. However, the administration can’t easily meet this level of need by using just its own facilities. To widen access to covered healthcare, they contract out services from third-party providers. Together, these contracted providers form the functioning core of the CCN. 

To simplify the process of administering the CNN, the VA divides it into five different regions. Each region provides services for veterans living in one of the following areas:

  • One or more U.S. states
  • Washington D.C.
  • Puerto Rico
  • The U.S. Virgin Islands
  • American Samoa
  • Guam 
  • The Northern Mariana Islands

New Jersey belongs to VA CCN Region One. This region also includes all other mid-Atlantic states, as well as New England and parts of the upper South. Administration duties for Region One fall to Optum Serve, a subsidiary of UnitedHealth Group. Optum Serve specializes in working with:

  • Federal agencies
  • Various communities served by those agencies

Much like other health insurance companies, it offers a network of providers you can see for treatment.

Have more questions about the VA CCN system? The Veterans Administration maintains a Community Care contact center to educate you on what to expect. You can also ask the professionals at SOBA New Jersey for further details.
