Improving Mental Health Care.


Improving Our Communities.



The Virginia Association of Community-Based Providers (VACBP) is a non-profit association comprised of private-sector providers of behavioral health and substance abuse treatment services at more than 165 locations throughout Virginia.

Our mission is to improve the lives of individuals and families, and the quality of life in local communities through the provision of efficient and effective private provider community-based behavioral health and substance abuse services.  We accomplish our mission by providing services and resources that maximize the quality and efficiency of our members, and by advocating for public policies that reward efficient and effective community-based behavioral health services.

Our members seek and utilize best practices in order to deliver maximum results for their clients and, where applicable, for the Commonwealth's investment of Medicaid funds.  The VACBP is leading the way in Virginia to improve quality through outcome-based measures.  The Competitive Credibility Data Program (CCDP) collects, aggregates and reports data on outcomes from the services of our members.  Measuring outcomes allows our members flexibility to evaluate outcomes and to change services and supports to improve the effectiveness and reduce the cost of community-based care.
