Business of the Quarter: The Elkton Vet Center

Vet Centers have been providing a safe place for Veterans, Service Members, and their families to talk and heal for over 43 years.The Elkton Vet Center was one of the earliest Vet Centers established by the Department of Veterans Affairs, opening its doors at the beginning of January 1980.
Vet Centers are conveniently located in community settings. We have a welcoming and non-clinical environment. Vet Centers are about Community, Camaraderie and Connections. We offer counseling, referrals, and community engagement to create a greater support system. We always have coffee, and it is a safe gathering place for support and camaraderie.
The Elkton Vet Center is within 15 miles of the Perry Point Veterans Administration Medical Center. We are also located in a tristate area; therefore, we serve veterans in Maryland, Delaware, and Pennsylvania.


Our Vet Center mission is to provide a wide variety of services for the veteran community including resource connection for any veteran. For veterans who meet our eligibility criteria we can provide individual, family, couples, and group therapy. We provide a variety of groups including war zone era, family support, walking and yoga groups. We specialize in treatment for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), military sexual trauma and bereavement. Our therapists are all trained in at least one evidenced based practice for PTSD such as Prolonged Exposure Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy and Eye

Movement Desensitization Reprocessing. We also provide therapeutic outings for the veterans we serve including an annual fishing trip on the Chesapeake Bay.The Elkton Vet Center is located at 103 Chesapeake Blvd., serves Cecil County, Harford County, and the Eastern Shore of Maryland. The main office is in Elkton, with two additional locations, one in Aberdeen, and in Salisbury, MD. We have community access points along the Eastern Shore of Maryland.
