Alternative Options for Veterans

 is a community of U.S. veterans and Matt, seeking financial support from you to provide awareness, education, safety, and research around alternative healing options for veterans suffering from a complex issue that is facing the nation today: Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD. 

According to a recent VA study, we lose 22 of our Nation's Warriors every day. The study has received critism for its exclusiveness in covering only 23 U.S. states, excluding Texas and California, which are the among the top states to have the highest demographic of veterans. It is a general consensus in the veteran community that it may be twice as many (22) that we lose to suicide, possibly as high as 50 a day. This cannot stand. 

Over the past 3 years Veterans for Entheogenic Therapy(VET) has successfully treated 150 veterans with entheogenic therapy through our program strictly from donations by the public.  Per the Veterans Administration , there is an estimated 300,000 - 600,000 Iraq and Afghanistan veterans who suffer with PTSD.  Currently we have a list of over 500 pre-screened (some homeless) United States veterans, many of which are desperately seeking an alternative healing option.

Our Goal is to raise $250,000 to clear our list.  Every donation helps and ALL DONATIONS go directly to veteran retreat and travel expenses.  PLEASE HELP, please donate if you can.  

Dear Potential Donor,

It is with humble earnest that we ask for your donation and contribution.  Our present situation with our Nation’s Warriors is dire at best.  Please know that you are a part of a grass roots effort to heal a damaged part of our collective psyche and spirit.  As we see it, there is nothing experimental about the VET program, these are ancient healing technologies that work by aggressively addressing and treating the root of the trauma.  Just as important as the direct healing experience is the VET integration program that fosters a supportive container in which our veterans can safely transform and thrive in their efforts to return to civilian life, in their efforts to be helpful and useful again.  

Our program has been battle tested over the past 3 years and is ready for your donation.  Please help us do what is right for those who have put everything on the line for all of our freedoms and personal liberties.  

If you made it this far, thank you for reading and your consideration.  With love and gratitude. 

Semper Fidelis,

Cpl. Ryan LeCompte, MA
