Supporting Veterans: Alternatives to VA Behavioral Health Services

Active-duty military service members and veterans hold an honored place in our society for their bravery and dedication to protecting our country’s freedoms. However, the stressors associated with military careers leave many people more vulnerable to mental and behavioral health challenges than the general population. Compounding the challenge, military service members face significant barriers in accessing appropriate care through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

A Proud Member of the Community Care Network

Often, the VA faces challenges in delivering health care, including long wait times and difficulty making appointments. These hindrances could discourage veterans from seeking the necessary help, creating a gap in their treatment and recovery process. The VA created its Community Care Network to ensure military service members receive timely, high-quality attention. With somewhat limited treatment options available through the VA, private-sector providers in the CCN provide a crucial alternative.

At Serene Behavioral Health, we are proud to be a CCN member, broadening the range of options for those who have served our country. You may meet the eligibility criteria for CCN-approved substance treatment if there are no full-service VA hospitals near you or your local VA hospital lacks adequate resources to meet your needs or fit you in with an appointment.

Our approach to mental and behavioral health treatment ensures veterans receive the customized attention they need without delay. With approval from the VA, we can enroll veterans in one of our four levels of care, offering comprehensive support and structured treatment plans tailor-made for individual needs.

Restoring Hope, Self-Worth, Freedom and Wellness

Our commitment to providing a healing environment sets Serene Behavioral Health apart. Our skilled professionals compassionately address the unique challenges veterans face, providing a personalized approach to care. The VA covers the cost of treatment, enabling more veterans to take advantage of our comprehensive services.

While the VA plays an essential role in providing vital services to veterans, limited access can make it challenging for many people to receive the lifesaving care they need. As a member of the VA’s Community Care Network, Serene Behavioral Health offers a practical alternative with accessible mental and behavioral health treatments. We hope to bridge the gap in veterans’ mental health treatment, ensuring you get the attention you need to lead a healthier, happier life.

Remember, needing support is not a weakness, but a sign of strength. Our veterans have bravely worn our country’s flag, and they deserve nothing less than the best. Together, let’s strive to create a society where mental health care is accessible to everyone, especially those who have fought to protect our freedoms.
