Army Recovery Care Program

    Army Recovery Care Program
    The Army Recovery Care Program (ARCP) evaluates and treats wounded, ill and injured Soldiers through a comprehensive, Soldier-centric process of medical care, rehabilitation, professional development and achievement of personal goals.

    Major elements of the ARCP include:

  • Warrior Transition Units (WTUs) provide mission command, medical management assistance and transition assistance to Soldiers as they navigate the Army’s medical treatment system to successfully reintegrate back into the force or transition from the Army. Fourteen WTUs are located at major military treatment facilities (MTFs) across the country. Soldiers whose medical situation allows may recover at home at one of nine Community Care Units (CCUs). Soldiers at these CCUs will receive the benefits of a dedicated Cadre, Triad of Leadership, Military Treatment Facility (MTF) staff, WTU staff and installation resources to ensure that they have the same experience as all WTU Soldiers across the program. Learn more about CCUs through the latest CCU fact sheet. CCUs are located at:
    • Fort Belvoir
    • Fort Benning
    • Fort Bliss
    • Fort Bragg
    • Fort Carson
    • Fort Hood
    • Fort Knox
    • Joint Base Lewis-McChord
    • Fort Riley
    • Fort Stewart

  • Army Wounded Warrior Program (AW2) - Assists severely wounded, ill and injured Soldiers, Veterans and their Families through the local support of an AW2 Advocate. Soldiers who qualify for AW2 are assigned to the program as soon as possible after arriving at the WTU.

  • Comprehensive Transition Plan (CTP) - The CTP is a six-part process that includes an individual recovery plan that the Soldier customizes and builds with the support of his/her Triad of Care and Family. The CTP is a dynamic living plan of action that focuses on the Soldier’s goals.

  • Triad of Care - Each WTU Soldier benefits from a squad leader, nurse case manager, and primary care manager assigned to a WTU. The squad leader leads the Soldiers, the nurse case manager coordinates his/her care, and the primary care physician oversees the care. The Triad creates the familiar environment of a military unit and surrounds the Soldier and his/her Family with comprehensive care and support, all focused on the wounded warrior's sole mission to heal.

  • Interdisciplinary Team - The Triad of Care is augmented by an interdisciplinary team of health care and transition specialists who work together to coordinate and optimize the care and transition of each individual Soldier. This team includes social workers, physical therapists, occupational therapists, AW2 Advocates, and many other professionals.

  • Career and Education - WTUs help the Soldier establish short-term and long-term career goals and identify opportunities to enhance existing skills or develop new ones based on the Soldier’s transition track, whether it is remaining in the Army or transitioning from the Army to civilian status.

  • Internships - Helps Soldiers prepare for civilian employment by helping identify opportunities to augment a Soldier's transition.

  • Health and Recovery - Provides helpful resources on access to medical care and adaptive reconditioning options to help Soldiers achieve their health, fitness, wellness, and resilience goals.
