CWT is a Department of Veterans Affairs clinical program which helps veterans who are recovering from a broad range of disabilities to achieve the highest level of vocational functioning possible. The NY Harbor CWT Program is CARF accredited, which means it meets rigorous guidelines for service and quality. Much of our programming is targeted at veterans recovering from homelessness, substance abuse, physical and psychiatric illness.
