The need for support for combat veterans and first responders is growing immensely. They experience events that many of us don’t see in a lifetime.
The world often sees the events and trauma that first responders and military members experience as “part of the job”. But these service members are just like you and me. They are people, friends, neighbors. They have emotions; they have faced difficult experiences, and those experiences build up over time leaving these men and women looking for help to deal with their emotions in a healthy way.
Combat veterans and first responders can thrive given the right tools that lead them on a path to positive wellness after experiencing trauma.
I can’t tell you how often I am asked about resources for veterans and first responders that not only help them after such trauma but also doesn’t cost them an arm and a leg; after all, they have sacrificed so much already.
Here is an organization focused on Posttraumatic Growth and training for combat veterans and first responders to help them live well and live a life of passion.
Boulder Crest Retreat for Veteran and Military Wellness, which includes First Responders:
I had the opportunity to visit the Virginia location of Boulder Crest Retreat recently and I was absolutely blown away.
Walking around the serene 37 acres in Bluemont, Virginia, I couldn’t help but notice how every area of the property had a very specific purpose, all meant to bring healing to those that attend their programs.
From the Heroes Garden to equine therapy to the labyrinth and archery center, each therapeutic space and activity at Boulder Crest Retreat was designed with wellness in mind.
Their flagship program, Warrior PATHH, is truly unique as it focuses on Posttraumatic Growth and how combat veterans and first responders can live a life of positive wellness even after experiencing such tragedy in their lives.
The Warrior PATHH program is available for combat veterans (active duty or veteran) and first responders who have experienced a critical incident. They have programs monthly at both their Virginia and Arizona locations for male and female veterans and first responders.
Warrior PATHH is a non-clinical program delivered by instructors that have grown from struggle to strength themselves. Once accepted into the free program, each participant will go through the 7-day program on-site at one of the Arizona or Virginia locations with 7-8 other veterans and first responders. In addition, participants will attend an 18-month program from home after the 7-day initiation.

Boulder Crest Retreat also offers Family Stays for combat veterans and their families. You can apply easily and stay anywhere from 2-7 nights for free in one of their available cabins for some much needed R&R. Learn more about how to apply here.
