More veterans die now from suicide then from combat!
We began our Warrior Down, No Vet Left Behind support program in 2012 as more and more veterans were returning from deployment with substance use and mental health issues. We are now expanding our veterans outreach. Currently City of Angels Warrior Down veterans support meets on the first and fourth Thursday nights at 7pm.
COA introduced our Fr. Vincent R. Capodanno Veteran’s Research Therapeutics. Therapeutics are a key influencer for your well-being. Through brain and wellness therapeutics COA will drive advances in and access to research and integrative/functional therapies to address the ravages that mental health and substance use disorders has had on our veterans. Keeping with the service and sacrifice of Fr. Capodanno no veteran is denied access due to status, religion or race.
Born of our Warrior Down -No Vet Left Behind program, no veteran will ever receive a bill from Fr. Vincent’s. COA believes that therapeutics, through initiatives like integrative therapies is the missing link to addressing mental health and substance use disorders. When COA started in 2008, relapse was inconvenient, but now relapse is deadly. So it’s not rocket science that if recovery can be extended, relapse can be prevented. All this, with a concentration on neurogenesis, as we hope to heal the brain. We are hoping to create this environment through a comprehensive wellness center.
