Arizona Veterans Center on wheels for combat veterans

Bringing services to combat veterans

The brunt of the counseling services Erik Adams, a veteran and counselor, offers is for post-traumatic stress disorder.

Combat veterans come to him to speak of their experiences in combat zones and their difficulties in readjusting to civilian life.

In Arizona, combat veterans living in rural communities typically had to drive long distances to receive services from a Veterans Center set up by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
But no longer.

"We have the ability to bring a mobile Vet Center into areas where there is no fixed site," said Bobby Fields, readjustment counseling tech for the Veterans Center in Prescott.

In late 2009, the Prescott Veterans Center received a $286,000 mobile Vet Center to take mental health services to vets throughout northern Arizona. And since 2010, the mobile unit comes to Flagstaff twice a month.

According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Vet Centers provide readjustment counseling to help combat veterans and their families successfully transition back to civilian life.
