Veteran Residential Rehabilitation Treatment Program (RRTP)
Coming Soon! VA San Diego Healthcare System is pleased to announce its plan to open a Veteran Residential Rehabilitation Treatment Program (RRTP) in the Old Town community in first half of 2014.
The Aspire Center is a 40-bed residential treatment facility aimed at promoting recovery in Servicemembers, particularly those returning from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Upon graduation from the RRTP program, the Veteran will transition to his or her own home to live independently with the assistance of a VA Case Manager. VA San Diego Healthcare System has a comprehensive case management team that assists Veterans with all aspects of reintegration including assistance with housing and finding employment.
