You are not alone. We are here to help.
The Illinois Warrior Assistance Program (IWAP) provides confidential assistance for Illinois Veterans and family members, including the spouse and child(ren) of eligible Veterans. Whether looking for a local resource for yourself or family member, coping with a change in your life, or simply looking for someone to speak with to better navigate the transition back to civilian life, the Illinois Warrior Assistance Program is here to help.
Common challenges we support include:
• Post Traumatic Stress
• Mild Traumatic Brain Injury
• Addiction and substance abuse
• Overall coping with daily emotions
• Legal and financial assistance
Proudly offered by the Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs (IDVA), the IWAP program is a confidential program with services provided by Magellan Health. The Illinois Department of Veterans Affairs is NOT part of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (USDVA – or “the VA”, as it’s often termed). While USDVA medical centers and benefits are administered and funded by the Federal government, IDVA is an Illinois executive agency administered and funded by the Governor and operates independently of the USDVA. Any help or assistance you receive is confidential, and will not be reported to the U.S. Armed Forces or U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs unless you instruct us to do so, or as required by law.
