Re-integration

Returning veterans face numerous problems. Many returning veterans are faced with disabilities, family problems, employment problems, substance abuse problems, psychological problems and legal issues to name just a few. The Bunker Project does not displace other approaches and priorities but rather examines how to support and facilitate other approaches while maximizing therapeutic outcomes and maximizing economic utility. Presently most programs to assist the veterans do not address the veteran’s family and legal issues that can include involvement in the criminal justice system. In traditional programs essential elements are often left unaddressed. While The Bunker Project is not a treatment program it does provide veterans and significant others of veterans with referrals to a wide range of reintegration opportunities. At the center of The Bunker Project is the idea that veterans helping veterans is the most realistic approach to assisting veterans in their reintegration process.
