“You will enter this program at your weakest, most vulnerable place. The safe environment will allow you to open up in a judgement and shame-free zone.”Male, Army“The fear of the unknown is very real. There is nothing more scare than surrendering your health and welfare to a group of strangers. This program is everything it has claimed to be and more. I came here with nothing but anger, resentment, fear and confusion. I now have the tools to deal with each. This is where you learn how to take a knee and get back up.”Female, Air Force
