VA Polytrauma Transitional Rehabilitation Programs (PTRP) are time limited, goal oriented, residential rehabilitation programs that partner with Veteran and Servicemember participants to improve their physical, cognitive, communicative, behavioral, psychological, and social functioning after significant injury or illness.
Currently, there are four PTRPs operating nationally at the VA medical centers in Minneapolis, Palo Alto, Richmond, and Tampa. The San Antonio PTRP, located at 4949 Gus-Eckert Road, will be opening soon.
The overarching goal of the PTRPs is to help participants return to the most appropriate, least restrictive community setting, by targeting skills necessary for return to home, school, work, or military service, as feasible.
The PTRPs offer interactive therapy programs designed to address the individual needs and goals of each participant, challenge participants through a wide range of individual and group therapeutic activities and living skills practices, focus heavily on community reintegration activities, and employ teams of licensed and credentialed rehabilitation professionals who provide patient-centered, integrated care.
