Serving Our Nation’s Heroes & Their Loved Ones
The Acadia Healthcare Military & Family Support Services (MFS) team is proud to be a valued resource for the brave professionals who protect our nation. Our program identifies appropriate treatment options for active-duty military members, veterans, and dependents who are struggling with substance use disorders and mental health concerns. We refer to premier facilities throughout the United States, all of which have been thoroughly vetted to ensure that they provide the highest quality of care in a safe and supportive environment.
Services Offered by the MFS Team
When a member of the military community needs professional care for a mental health disorder or behavioral health concern, the MFS team is prepared to provide significant guidance and substantial support before, during, and after the person’s time in treatment.
Our centralized referral process includes working directly with patients and families, collecting all necessary clinical documentation, verifying insurance coverage, reviewing appropriate treatment providers, and preparing for a successful admission.
Once we’ve identified the optimal placement for the patient, the MFS team will secure authorization for treatment, gather consents for admission, complete any required paperwork, and provide scheduling or logistical support as needed.
Throughout a person’s time in treatment, the MFS liaison’s ongoing support services may include continuing to monitor their progress, coordinating with the facility, and ensuring effective communication between their treatment team and their family.
As the discharge date approaches, the MFS liaison will remain in contact with the patient, their family, the treatment team, and other professionals as necessary to support either a successful return home or a seamless transition to the next level of care.
