United States active duty service members or veterans, both male and female.  On occasion we offer slots to first responders and law enforcement officers.

Is ORW a substance abuse treatment program?

We are unable to meet the need for those currently battling regular substance abuse and addictions. Due to the nature of the program, in order to attend a program, we ask for 6 months sobriety prior to arrival. We recommend seeking a substance abuse program and/or counselor to help.

I’d like to sign up someone I care about. How do I do that?

It is important that all applicants register for themselves on their own accord with no outside pressure to attend. We would ask that you point them to the ORW website so that they may learn more on their own and make a decision for themselves.

I am not a combat veteran. Can I still attend?

Yes! Operation Restored Warrior is open to ALL military service members and veterans regardless of branch, MOS, rank, or experiences.

How long will I have to wait to attend a program?

The first step of the process is registration. After that, someone from the ORW team will reach out to you and walk you through the process.  Due to the demand of our program, you will be placed on a short waiting list after your registration is complete.

Can I attend with a friend or family member?

Due to the amount of service members and veterans waiting to attend a program, we are unable to accommodate friends and/or family members to attend together.
