How We Work with the VA

Bradford Recovery Center is a proud provider of substance use disorder treatment for United States military veterans who are struggling with addictions to drugs or alcohol. We offer this care through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Community Care Network (CCN). 

What Is the Community Care Network?

Created in 2018, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Community Care Network (CCN) links the VA with healthcare providers across the nation. 

The VA’s objective is to help veterans get the behavioral healthcare they need as soon as possible. The CCN gives veterans an easy way to find treatment at any VA facility or from other authorized providers within their communities. 

Providers who are a part of the CCN have been thoroughly vetted and span all 50 states and all United States territories. 

The VA has teamed up with several third-party administrators (TPAs) to develop all six regional networks and ensure quality care. The VA awarded contracts to Optum Public Sector Solutions Inc. and TriWest Healthcare Alliance to serve five of the six regions in the U.S. The sixth region, which includes American Samoa, Guam, and the Northern Mariana Islands, is still uncontracted. 


Bradford Recovery Center operates in a region that is served by Optum Public Sector Solutions Inc., also referred to as Optum. 

In 2018, Optum received a contract from the Department of Veterans Affairs, authorizing it to begin serving as the TPA for three regions belonging to the CCN. 

Optum currently serves Regions 1-3 of the CCN, including the northeastern, southeastern, and central areas of the United States, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. 

Navigating the CCN

At Bradford Recovery Center, we understand how overwhelming it can be to find the right treatment option using the CCN. We want to ensure that military veterans and their loved ones have a complete understanding of their treatment options. 

Our team is ready to assist military veterans as they navigate the CCN. We are here to help them use it to their advantage and answer any questions they may have.
