Veterans Affairs Community Care Network

Seeking treatment for mental health and substance use disorders is particularly critical for veteran service members and for their families.

Rosecrance removes barriers to treatment and combats stigma that surrounds behavioral health disorders so those who served can have the best opportunity for lasting recovery.

We are proud to be an approved provider through the Veterans Affairs Community Care Network (VA-CCN) to support you and reduce the financial barriers for the lifesaving care Rosecrance provides.

This network links the VA with leading community providers to ensure veterans can receive high-quality care in their communities.

Our physician-led team delivers outcomes-informed residential treatment for veterans at our Rosecrance Harrison Campus in Rockford, Illinois. Specialized programming incorporates occupational factors and traumas into the treatment experience, along with peer support, therapeutic recreation, individual, group, and family counseling, and 12-Step support.

For referring providers, Rosecrance will provide regular updates to you while your patient is in residential care with us, and then your patient will return to your care at discharge.

Rosecrance is an approved VA-CCN provider

Supporting Veteran Families

Education, support, and help for veterans’ families are essential components of our programming at Rosecrance.

We emphasize the benefits of including family members in the treatment process and help identify the appropriate people to include. Families are contacted within 24 hours of their loved one’s transfer to residential care and they continue to receive updates on a weekly basis.

Veterans in our care can access weekly virtual visitation sessions with family members to maintain connection, and loved ones are included in family counseling sessions.

As an individual is preparing to leave treatment, they work directly with our discharge planning team who, alongside our clinicians, establish and confirm all aftercare needs.
