Veterans Unstoppable

Veterans Unstoppable is our confidential, no-cost program and service to warriors and their loved ones facing post traumatic stress injury and other invisible wounds of military service. This program currently has three sub- programs; peer support groups, retreats, recreational therapy and service dogs.

ABOUT OUR UNIQUE PROGRAM

Veterans Unstoppable is an individually tailored 5 step life skills development program that fosters healthy life adjustments for Veterans. This addresses differences in each Veterans experiences – we recognize there isn’t a “one size fits all” solution to Veteran reintegration. Veterans Unstoppable guides Veterans through the transition process in a supportive and safe environment free from distractions.


5 Step Program:

Phase 1: Managing exposures and their effects

Phase 2: Reducing Social Conflict

Phase 3: Finding Closure to reduce stress and anxiety

Phase 4: Finding Purpose and direction in life by making a plan

Phase 5: Recreational Therapy through Fly Fishing


STATISTICS

Emotional wounds or PTS injuries can interfere with a Veteran’s ability to navigate relationships. Since 9-11-01 we have lost more active duty service members to suicide than to combat.

• 1 in 5 Veterans return with some degree of Post Traumatic Stress (PTS)

• Recent studies reveal that an average of 22 Veterans commit suicide each day

• Divorce and homeless rates are double civilian rates

We have never lost a Veterans Unstoppable program participant or graduate in the war at home

We are currently looking to train peer facilitators to open new peer groups.
