Restore Program for Veterans in Tennessee

Mirror Lake Recovery Center is proud to serve United States military veterans, active duty service members, and their families who are seeking substance use disorder and co-occurring mental health treatment through the Department of Veterans Affairs Community Care Network.

What Is the Community Care Network?

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Community Care Network (CCN) was created in 2018 to offer a direct link between the VA and behavioral healthcare providers around the country. 

The VA’s development of the CCN was done to ensure that veterans have timely, widely available access to quality care. The creation of the CCN allows veterans to receive treatment from authorized providers within the community and VA facilities. 

The CCN is organized into six regional networks. It includes extensively vetted treatment providers for residents of all 50 states and each U.S. territory.  

Optum Public Sector Solutions Inc. serves as the third-party administrator (TPA) for three of those six regions; TriWest Healthcare Alliance is the TPA for two; and Region 6, which includes American Samoa, Guam, and the Northern Mariana Islands, is awaiting a designated provider. 


Optum Public Sector Solutions Inc., generally known as Optum, is part of UnitedHealth Group. 

Optum received a contract in 2018 from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to serve as the third-party administrator (TPA) for three regions in the VA’s Community Care Network. 

Optum is the TPA for Regions 1, 2, and 3, which includes the northeastern, southeastern, and central areas of the United States, as well as the U.S. Virgin Islands. 

Navigating the CCN

Mirror Lake Recovery Center is part of Acadia Healthcare, which features a Military & Family Support Services (MFS) team. This group includes a nationwide network of military liaisons who can help veterans navigate the Community Care Network (CCN) and connect them with the treatment programs that best meet their specific needs. 

With liaisons in communities around the country, the MFS team can connect veterans with trusted providers of quality behavioral healthcare services. The MFS team has extensive experience with the policies and procedures of the CCN, which enables them to offer the best guidance to individuals and families who are seeking treatment. 

Our Programming

Mirror Lake Recovery Center provides a specialized program for veterans who are struggling with a substance use disorder and a co-occurring mental health concern such as anxiety, depression, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), trauma, or bipolar disorder. 

Veterans can call anytime, 24/7, to complete a free and confidential assessment. Our team of admissions coordinators will work through clinical and medical screenings, insurance verification, and any other necessary steps to help you get the care you deserve.

Patients in our veterans program will work with a team of compassionate, experienced professionals who understand the unique needs of those who have served. During your time in treatment, you may benefit from treatment modalities such as:

  • Motivational interviewing 
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) 
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) 
  • Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) 
  • Acudetox 
  • Elements of 12-Step programming

Veterans will have access to medical care, medication management services, and, if necessary, medical detoxification. 

Our primary means of treatment comes in the form of group therapy sessions, which include psychoeducational groups, process groups, recreational groups, book study, and faith-based alternatives.  

Along with group therapy, veterans may participate in other therapeutic interventions, including:

  • Individual therapy 
  • Family therapy 
  • Experiential therapies, including holistic options and art therapy 

All veterans will benefit from Mirror Lake Recovery Center’s recently remodeled facility, which sits on an open campus in a lakeside setting that is conducive to healing.
