Vocational rehabilitation can offer a variety of services -- such as prosthetic appliances, college education, vocational training, job placement, and many support services -- to a range of Arkansans with disabilities. All this is done through a community-based network that allows the program to assist an often hard-to-reach population.
ARS has 19 field offices across the state serving all 75 counties. We also operate the Arkansas Career Training Institute (formerly the Hot Springs Rehabilitation Center) a comprehensive, state-owned rehabilitation facility -- one of only nine in the country and the only one in the country west of the Mississippi River. In addition to the 16 vocational training areas offered (with more than 20 specialty areas within these programs), the center is comprised of a medical unit providing traumatic care and comprehensive physical and occupational therapy, and takes clients with private insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid.
