Readjustment Counseling Service (RCS) is a program of the Department of Veterans Affairs created to provide a broad range of psycho-social services to combat veterans and their family members to assist them in their readjustment to civilian life. RCS provides services to eligible veterans and their family members in “storefront" counseling centers located in the communities. Vet Center services include, but are not limited to: counseling services to combat veterans from all eras, veterans sexually traumatized while on active duty, and families of service members killed on active duty. Services are also available to all eligible veterans' family members for issues related to the veteran's military service. The goal of this program is to establish and maintain an outreach program to assist those eligible veterans who have failed to make adequate psychosocial adjustment and re-entry into civilian life.
