Compensated Work Therapy (CWT)


Compensated Work Therapy is a program comprised of Therapeutic Work (TW) and Supported Employment (SE). Referrals are made through your Primary Care Physician (for those with physical limitations) and/or your Primary Mental Health Clinician (for those with mental health issues). The goal of the program is to help veterans obtain permanent employment.

Our professional CWT staff provides:

  • State of the art vocational rehabilitation services
  • Job matching and employment supports
  • Vocational Case Management
  • Work site and job analysis
  • Consultation regarding assistive technology
  • Reasonable accommodation
  • Guidance in addressing ADA regulations compliance

CWT programs strive to maintain highly responsive long term quality relationships with business and industry promoting employment opportunities for veterans with physical and mental disabilities. Typically CWT programs are located within VA medical centers in most large metropolitan areas and many smaller communities. Review the CWT Locations page to find site specifics.
