Veterans Alternative is honored to announce it has been awarded a $10,000 grant from the Florida Medical Clinic Foundation of Caring. This money will be used to provide 20 veterans with four sessions each of individualized Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART).
Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) is an evidence-based therapy that has been shown to achieve benefits more rapidly than other traditional therapies, usually seeing results in 1-5 sessions. ART works directly to reprogram the way in which distressing memories are stored in the brain so they no longer trigger strong physical and emotional reactions.
ART is the cornerstone of the Veterans Alternative program. Veterans Alternative helps combat veterans suffering from post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or traumatic brain injuries. It does this through a week-long Accelerated Wellness Program, which offers these veterans and their significant others a week of reset, replenishment and rejuvenation.
“Recently, Veterans Alternative started offering stand-along ART sessions to veterans in addition to our weeklong program,” said Brian Anderson, founder and president of Veterans Alternative. “Thanks to the Florida Medical Clinic Foundation of Giving grant, 20 veterans who are suffering from symptoms of post traumatic stress or traumatic brain injury will be able to find relief and hopefully some peace after participating in Accelerated Resolution Therapy.”
Who We Are
Veterans Alternative is a 501(c)(3) that provides services to Combat Veterans and their spouses. Combat Veterans include Military members and Veterans who have served in a deployed location during conflict or war. After serving in Afghanistan as a detachment Senior Special Forces engineer with the Army’s elite 7th Special Forces Group, CEO/Founder Brian Anderson came home and was met with two realizations. The first was transition back into civilian life was much more difficult than he’d imagined. The second was finding effective treatments for the invisible wounds of war was even harder. Armed with a new mission, Brian and his team created Veterans Alternative as a way to provide effective alternative therapies.
