The Warrior’s Path:
PTSD Treatment & Therapy
According to a report from the PTSD Foundation of America , an estimated 1 in 3 US soldiers is being diagnosed with serious post-traumatic stress symptoms upon returning home from battle. Less than 40% of these veterans will actively seek help, and without the right support, the risk of suicide increases. One study found that veterans are 50% more likely than civilians to commit suicide, and by some estimates, 22 veterans take their own lives every day. Our goal at Operation: Warrior’s Path is to provide a solution to PTSD by battling it head on through non-conventional means of treatment and therapy.
We can’t let PTSD continue to control our veterans’ daily lives. By providing more effective treatments for PTSD, Operation: Warrior’s Path is stepping forward to put an end to the loss of more of our veterans to suicide. It is with this mentality that we are starting the Warrior’s Path program. Learn more about our program below, and if this is a cause you believe in, please consider making a donation to helping soldiers win the war against PTSD.
What is the Warrior's Path?
The Warrior’s Path is a 5-7 day PTSD treatment program that takes place at a quiet retreat center in Texas. The Path teaches veterans to shape their own futures through alternative methods of PTSD therapy. For example, equine therapy, in which veterans learn to control their adrenaline and cultivate trust with horses, is a significant part of our approach. We also use art and music therapy, sports, team building exercises, labyrinth activities, and other strategies to help our vets successfully process their combat trauma. Veterans will have the opportunity to participate in both individual and group therapy for PTSD.
Veterans nominated to take part in our program will be able to explore different treatment approaches. By providing both PTSD counseling and a range of activity resources at our retreat, we hope to allow our program participants to find the therapeutic solution that works best for them. Everyone is different, and we recognize that each veteran may need a different therapy or combination of therapies in order to learn to cope with PTSD and better control their emotions.
At Operation: Warrior’s Path our ultimate goal is to keep veterans from getting to the point where they lose everything, their family or their career, and to stop them from pulling the trigger. We are here to help veterans re-establish who they are following their combat experience, learn to trust and engage others with a support network, and make the changes that are needed to successful integrate back themselves into civilian life.
