Who is eligible?
The 2019-20 retreats are open to women veterans who were deployed during OEF/OIF, and who are actively engaged in their re-integration into civilian life.
It is important that each woman have at least a basic understanding of the issue she wants to address during the retreat and has support to help her transfer the learning from the retreat to her home life. Therefore it is required that applicants be currently engaged in counseling or therapy, preferably at a Vet Center, for at least three sessions during the past six months. Applicants may have a private or VA therapist but must do a one-session intake at a Vet Center to be eligible.
Applicants must have already addressed sobriety issues, and need to be clean and sober for at least one month prior to the retreat. Personal motivation and the ability to work on personal issues in a group setting are also addressed in the screening process.
