Veterans transitioning into civilian life often experience great difficulty and stress during their adjustment. Many times, those difficulties are due to combat-related traumatic events which, if left untreated, could cause serious obstacles to stability and prosperity in civilian life. U.S.VETS offers free counseling and treatment services designed to address the unique needs of each client in a safe and confidential environment. Please contact us if you need mental health and wellness services.
MENTAL HEALTH AND WELLNESS
Outside the Wire was created to provide preventative and mental health treatment to veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. A record number of post-9/11 veterans are going to college in community colleges and technical schools throughout Los Angeles and Orange County, OTW offers individual and group therapy to student veterans and families. Strong partnerships with these schools allow OTW to provide comprehensive mental health services through veteran student counseling and resource centers.
While every woman’s transition from service to civilian life is unique, many female veterans find this life-change isolating for a number of reasons. There is growing awareness of the trauma, sexual assault, and mental health concerns faced by women who have served in the military. That’s where Women Vets on Point comes in. Designed and informed by women veterans, this transformational program offers women veterans the mental health counseling and critical wellness tools needed to overcome emotional barriers that can be easily accessed through a unique digital platform.
For veterans who struggle with addiction, we offer a safe, sober and therapeutic environment for their recovery.

The clinicians are available on-site for crisis interventions and coordinate their efforts with the local Veterans Administration Medical Center (VAMC) and the local Crisis Intervention Response Team.
