Comprehensive Transition Plan

Comprehensive Transition Plan (CTP)

The Triad of Care and interdisciplinary team of clinical and non-clinical professionals work closely with each Soldier and Family throughout recovery and transition.

To support each wounded, ill and injured Soldier's return to the force or transition to Veteran status, the Army created a systematic framework called the Comprehensive Transition Plan (CTP).

The CTP is a dynamic, living plan of action that focuses on the Soldier’s future. The CTP uses six domains: career, physical, emotional, social, Family and spiritual to establish goals that map a Soldier’s transition plan. As the owner of the CTP, the Soldier is empowered to take charge of his own transition and is accountable for developing and achieving his goals while complying with all the medical and military responsibilities. The CTP enables each Soldier to complete a successful transition to his/her desired goal while in the Warrior Transition Unit (WTU) or Community Care Unit (CCU).

Six Processes of the CTP

Remain in the Army Track: for all Soldiers who will continue military service, including:

Transition from the Army Track: This includes all Soldiers who are not expected to continue military service in either an active or reserve status, including:

The rehabilitation progress and outcome also provides the PCM with information to determine the Soldier’s MRDP. If MRDP is reached, the company commander will facilitate a FTR with battalion oversight to assess the Soldier’s progress, status of the transition plan and proficiency of the interdisciplinary team’s efforts.

What role does my Family have in my CTP?

Your Family has a key role in helping you to complete your self-assessment and assists you in accomplishing the goals that you set. Your Family is encouraged to attend all CTP scrimmages.

The WTU leadership and interdisciplinary team are available to provide answers to any questions that your Family members may have regarding the CTP.

How much time do I have to develop my CTP after being assigned or attached to WTU?

All Soldiers assigned or attached to a WTU will begin the CTP process upon assignment or attachment to a WTU.

What role does the Warrior Transition Command have in managing my CTP?

The Warrior Transition Command (WTC) is responsible for the integration of Warrior Care and Transition processes across the Army, and for enhancing care and improving the transition of wounded, ill and injured Soldiers back to duty or into civilian life as productive Veterans. The WTC develops policy and guidance to standardize and optimize the use of the CTP and manages its related administrative requirements.
