HOUSTON - The new Spring Vet Center will hold a Grand Opening Celebration on Friday, January 8, 2010, 10 a.m. at 14300 Cornerstone Village Drive, Houston, Texas 77014.
The Spring Vet Center is a premier facility designed to provide quality readjustment services to Veterans who have served in a combat theatre. These services include individual, group, and family counseling as well as treatment for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), bereavement, and victims of military sexual trauma. Vet Centers also conduct community outreach activities.
Established in 1979, the Department of Veterans Affairs Vet Center program operates a system of 271 community-based counseling centers. Services are also available for their family members for military related issues. Veterans have earned these benefits through their service and all are provided at no cost to the veteran or family.
The new Spring Vet Center is approximately 3,000 square feet, including two group rooms and several offices that can be used for readjustment counseling. The Vet Center has a well-trained core staff, (many Veterans or combat Veteran themselves) comprised of social workers, counselors, and an administrator. The center uses research-supported treatment methods designed to improve and help sustain the quality of life for Veterans, their families, and significant others during the readjustment process.
The Spring, Tx. Vet Center is open Monday- Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 pm. Evening and weekend hours are available for those unable to schedule services during the week day.
There are two other Vet Centers located in southeast Texas. One on 2990 Richmond, Suite 325, Houston, TX 77098, telephone 713.523.0884 and the other on 701 N. Post Oak Road, Suite 102, Houston, TX 77024, telephone 713.682.2288.
