Special Tree’s Vocational Rehabilitation Program recently became an Approved Vocational Rehabilitation Facility through the State of Michigan’s Worker’s Compensation Agency. This is great news to the growing program that employs 50 workers and serves over 90 clients in three locations. The certification means that our team will be able to serve more individuals looking to return to work post injury. The State of Michigan Certification allows injured workers injured with Workers Compensation Insurance to receive vocational rehabilitation at any of Special Tree's three locations in Troy, Romulus and Midland. Our program received the accreditation by meeting the quality standards and requirements outlined by the State of Michigan.
"This certification increases our ability to help individuals through their path to rehabilitation and helps our program continue to expand and improve- And we’re really excited about that,” said Joe J. Richert, Director of Community Rehabilitation Services. As the program continues to grow it will provide a wide variety of supported work settings, community enclaves, as well as formal vocational assessments and community placement services.
Special Tree Rehabilitation Services’ Vocational Rehabilitation Program is a CARF accredited program.
