By    |   Tuesday, 19 June 2018 09:15 AM

Veterans returning home often face many challenges, ranging from the emotional trauma of battlefield experiences to physical disabilities. Fortunately, vets do have rehabilitation resources available to them to focus on their particular needs.

Sometimes, just finding employment in civilian life can pose difficulties for vets adjusting to their new environments. No matter the issues or worries, veterans can rest assured there are programs available to ease the transition process.

Here are seven rehabilitation resources for veterans:

1. Vocational rehab — The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) offers vocational rehabilitation and employment services to assist with job training, coaching for job seeking skills, starting a business, and independent living services for the severely disabled. Information is provided on the VA benefits web page.

Special: Loophole Can Qualify Seniors for $20,500 Check

2. Disabled American Veterans (DAV) — The DAV connects vets with employment opportunities through fairs and resources available. The non-profit organization also provides transportation for medical appointments and assists vets dealing with benefit claims.

3. Health programs — Veterans can check with the VA for hospital care and outpatient services that preserve and restore health, Military.com notes. Treatments for post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), blindness rehabilitation, traumatic brain injury, and radiation exposure are among the available programs.

4. Home healthcare — Many vets may need care while recovering or going through rehabilitation. In the VA’s healthcare package, vets can receive skilled home healthcare services and other home services. The VA provides information on applying on its eBenefits page.

5. Alcohol and substance abuse — The psychological and emotional trauma of war may lead to addiction. The American Addiction Centers provide drug rehab guides and information for addicted vets and their families.

6. Rehabilitation and prosthetic services — Vets can improve their quality of life through medical rehabilitation, prosthetic, and sensory aids with the VA. Audiology and speech pathology, amputation system care, and recreation therapy are among the services offered.

7. Assistance for homeless vets — Learn about housing vouchers and rental assistance for homeless vets through the HUD-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) program. Finding homes helps vets through the rehabilitation process.
