Reintegration of recovered military personnel
The process used by the military to help recovered personnel return to normal life
involves medical care, psychological support, debriefings and family support.
It is carried out in three phases:
- Phase 1: Initial Recovery - The returnee is given medical triage, psychological support and a tactical debriefing
- Phase 2: Decompression Location - The returnee is moved to a regional hospital for at least 72 hours for more medical exams and debriefings
- Phase 3: United States Base - The returnee is reunited with family and receives more medical care and final debriefings
