Outdoor-rooted veteran therapy program accepting applications
Equinox Ranch will welcome combat veterans to its inaugural program this June.
The ranch, located in the Caney Fork area of Jackson County, has been working since 2017 to get the facilities and program ready to help combat veterans with PTSD. The program is longer and more comprehensive than any currently in existence, and treatment includes both verbal therapies and activities such as music, gardening and art blended with the beauty of the natural landscape and camaraderie of fellow veterans.
The yearlong program starts with a 10-day stay at the ranch followed by a weeklong session later in the year. Between the two sessions veterans get support from Equinox, Veterans Affairs and civilian care.
The program is free for veterans. To apply or to make a donation, visit www.equinoxranch.org.
