Veteran, Autism, Addiction Relief

$60,000 goal

Campaign created 10 months ago
Do you know a veteran, active military or first responder who is struggling with PTSD or addiction?

Do you know someone who has yet to find relief from excessive medication or is unable to receive effective treatment or therapies for their condition?

We do!

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs estimates that PTSD affects almost 31 percent of Vietnam veterans. As many as 10 percent of Gulf War (Desert Storm) veterans. 11 percent of veterans of the war in Afghanistan. 20 percent of Iraqi war veterans. It is said that there are currently 22 PTSD suicides a day and it’s a sad truth.

The sale of painkillers alone has increased by over 300% since 1999 and overdoses caused by painkillers are more common than heroin and cocaine overdoses combined. We can’t even image what that number looks like today.

Fortunately, we know how to help and want to help! Our team at The Centers has been working diligently to raise the awareness of a successful proven treatment called Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. This in conjunction with Art Therapy has successfully brought  our patients from a life full of struggle back to quality.

We understand that in this day in age most problems are treated with throwing a pill at the issue. HBOT actually does the opposite it resolves the issue while removing the need for medication.

HBOT Therapy:

Increases the body’s ability to fight infections

Potentiates antibiotic capabilities

Decreases swelling and inflammation

Accelerates cellular renewal

Stimulates collagen production

Improves quality of life for patients and their families

Here’s how it works:

During the treatment, 100% oxygen is delivered into the chamber causing increased atmospheric pressure. This is symbiosis causes oxygen concentration within the body to increase 15 to 20 times the normal air pressure. Increased oxygen concentrations help the body initiate cellular processes that can accelerate healing and aid in the recovery from certain conditions and illnesses. HBOT is known to be non-invasive and safe, and has minimal to no side effects. HBOT is always administered under the constant surveillance of a medical professional.

To educate you a little bit more on HBOT and who we are:

The Centers at Palm Key supports a wellness goal focused on unresolved issues for individual clients and families dealing with addiction, PTSD, autism and other disruptive conditions. Palm Key as a locale in the Low Country has a history of success using a multi-faceted approach  of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT), the arts, activities and retreat options in the healing and peaceful environment of Palm Key for individuals.

We are a group of motivated and passionate individuals who dedicate a large majority of our daily lives to give back quality lives to those who have selflessly served our nation. Collectively, our team has seen years of amazing results of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy which allows us to be highly motivated to build the HBOT Centers at Palm Key for Health and Wellness. The Center is designed to help treat those suffering from a variety of health conditions and diseases. Watching this healing process always feels like watching yet another miracle. Knowing the potential of HBOT therapy inspires us to build and operate The Centers at Palm Key to serve the multitude of people in need of help and fighting for a quality life.

With your help:

Healing will be accomplished through treatments in the hyperbaric oxygen treatment facility and through experiencing comradery and togetherness through art therapy, educational training, and other wellness workshops. Lodging and food services for participants also will be provided. We see this integration of treatment and therapy as paths that will lead our patients to a better life!

Here are just a couple of the hundreds of success stories:

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder: 45 years old medically discharged soldier who suffered from insomnia and severe PTSD received HBOT therapy. The insomnia and PTSD led him to be extremely withdrawn from his family. He hardly socialized with others and rarely left his bedroom;  eating all his meals alone. After completing 90 HBOT Dives over six months, the client reported he was no longer on his “cocktail” of medicines and felt as though he was back to his former self. His social skills were enhanced, he began spending time with his family again; his overall quality of life was vastly improved.

Traumatic Brain Injury and PTSD: Patient in his 20’s who experienced an IED explosion and the immediate loss of a fellow soldier received HBOT therapy. He complained of daily headaches, severe pain in his feet, thoughts of suicide and drastic mood swings. The client completed 70 HBOT dives and reported a drastic reduction of headaches, the pain in his fee improved by 90% and his mood and temperament has improved. Instead of sitting around the house all day, he now spends his time fishing or spending time with his wife and kids.

If you still need to be convinced of these miracles we see or want to learn more please reach out. We love educating and spreading the word of an effective treatment that actually works! We are changing the world for others. Be a part by giving. Donate what you're able.

We are firm believers that everyone deserves an quality life. We are extremely grateful for any contributions to help bring our goal to life!
