Those who serve our nation in the military, whether during wartime or peace, sometimes need help reintegrating into civilian society. Over the years, RHD has assisted veterans with issues of homelessness, drug or alcohol abuse, incarceration, trauma, mental illness and anxiety in its human-services programs throughout the country.
In 2009, alarmed at the nation’s lack of capacity to help them, RHD began a nationwide program for Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans – and their families – aimed at easing the difficult transition stateside. Called Healing Ajax, the project is based on veterans who’ve made the transition successfully guiding those who haven’t yet done so, using a trauma-recovery group support model especially modified for combat veterans. Stigma-free and solidly confidential, Healing Ajax aims to serve tens of thousands of veterans and family members.
RHD created a Veterans Interest Group made up of veterans, family members of veterans, and others who serve or care about veterans. These RHD employees from across the country are looking for ways to recruit more veterans to work at RHD, as well as to expand our programs that serve veterans.

'There with you then. Here for you now.'
No one understands the transition from the battlefield to the homefront like someone who has endured it and managed it. That’s why RHD’s Healing Ajax program for veterans battling issues from PTSD to depression relies upon peer support groups led by trained veterans.
Veterans are always welcome at the multitude of RHD programs throughout the nation. As veterans’ issues accelerate as a result of the growing number of men and women sent into combat situations and returning home, RHD specializes in services directly addressing veterans needs.
