MISSOULA – Detachment, Isolation, feeling that nothing is important anymore; these are some of the symptoms that many veterans have when returning from combat. So what services are offered to local veterans?
The Missoula Vet Center in downtown Missoula offers many different types of counseling in order to get veterans to re-engage with their community.
It also helps veterans with obtaining VA medical care, job searching, and organizing their finances.
The outreach program specialist is an example to how treatment works. “A guy that’s in my position at the time from a vet center sent a letter to me said hey are you feeling all of those things, are you feeling detached, are you feeling all of those things, and I was, and with the help of my wife I was able to connect to a vet center and get some counseling. Kind of get back into society,” said Brian Becker, Vet Center Outreach Program Specialist.
