Homecoming for Veterans
is a program created by The EEG Institute. As providers with Homecoming for Veterans we are offering this treatment for veterans who suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The statistical data gained from veterans and this program is then given back to Homecoming for Veterans to raise awareness and promote more services for military personnel.
“The work is success-oriented rather than deficit-focused. It is a fitness strategy that avoids the jargon of mental health, and suits the soldier's natural orientation toward a training and fitness program. Veterans who have been through the program have shown tremendous positive benefits. A veteran who had not slept more than 2 hours at a time was sleeping through the night after just 7 sessions, without medication. This same veteran had avoided the movie theater because that was the location of his first flashback. After 12 sessions, he saw a movie for the first time in 8 years. Another veteran was able to save his marriage and family by calming down his anger and his need to control everything. Behaviors that had been appropriate in wartime were destroying his home life. Veterans are getting their lives back with neurofeedback. Even a veteran from WWII found his sleep restored after not having slept well since 1945
