Veterans Services

To our veterans, LifeSpring says, “Thank you for your service!” We are pleased to welcome you home, and are available if you need us. 

 

LifeSpring is committed to providing quality services to our returning servicemen and women.  At every LifeSpring location, we have clinical staff who are trained to respond to the special kinds of issues veterans face as they work to reintegrate into their lives at home.  Additionally, our staff have been trained in working with the Veterans Administration and other veterans services organizations to ensure veterans are receiving all benefits they’ve earned, and to provide comprehensive services to veterans and their families. Call LifeSpring today for assistance (812)280-2080.
