Nurturing Our Warriors Week in Las Vegas – 10/8 through 10/12
Gala presentation of a new Veteran Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment Center in Las Vegas, designed to provide hyperbaric oxygen therapy to treat Veterans suffering from traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress. This amazing technology restores the lives of Veterans, athletes, police and firefighters and their families and is a game-changer in the fight against the epidemic of Veteran depression, homelessness and suicide caused by the scourge of untreated traumatic brain injury.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), widely used to treat a variety of injuries and diseases, has been shown to “permanently curtail TBI and PTSD symptoms, returning Veterans to a more normalized life”.
More than 300,000 Veterans – nearly one in 5 serving since 9/11/2001 – suffer from Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Often referred to as the signature wounds of the war on terror, Veterans with these injuries suffer from unbearable headaches, dizziness, depression, nightmares, and violent mood swings and are a leading cause of high suicide rates among Veterans, currently at 22 a day.
The planned Imagine N.O.W. Hyperbaric Treatment Center of Las Vegas will provide care to thousands of Las Vegas and Nevada Veterans who suffer daily from the devastating effects of TBI and PTSD. It will operate in cooperation with other Las Vegas and Nevada-based Veteran advocates such as the Blue Star Mothers, the Concerned Veterans of America, and many others. The new Imagine N.O.W. Center will treat Veterans under a research protocol as well to advance the science and include other supporting cognitive and physical therapies to raise cognitive skills as well as providing job-training opportunities to help Veterans treated at the Center return to the work place as productive citizens of the community.
