2. Healing and Wellness Retreats
EAV’s multi-day residential retreats offer Maine veterans and their primary caregiver or other supportive family member or friend an opportunity to learn about alternative healing modalities which may help them to manage the symptoms of PTSD or TBI. Additionally, participants have the opportunity for recreation and relaxation in a beautiful natural setting. Retreats begin at 4:00 PM on the first day and end late morning on the last day. There is no cost to the veteran or accompanying caregiver. Applications must be accompanied by DD214 and verification of diagnosis by medical doctor or case manager.
A retreat is scheduled for November 12-15, 2018.
These four veteran / dog teams completed 16 weeks of training in January, 2018. Congratulations for your hard work and accomplishments!
