Who Is Eligible?
The 2016 retreats are open to women veterans who served in Iraq or Afghanistan during OEF/OIF, and who are actively engaged in their re-integration to civilian life. It is important that each woman have at least a basic understanding of the issue she wants to address during the retreat, and has support to help her transfer the learning from the retreat to her home life. Therefore it is required that applicants be currently engaged in counseling or therapy, and have been in counseling for at least three sessions during the past six months. Applicants must have already addressed sobriety issues, and need to be clean and sober for at least one month prior to the retreat. Personal motivation and ability to work on personal issues in a group setting are also addressed in the screening process.
