Share Military Initiative
The Shepherd’s Men team is honored to partner with SHARE Military Initiative (SHARE) at Shepherd Center in Atlanta, GA. This nationally recognized program is unrivaled in its comprehensive innovative treatment program and strong results.
SHARE offers a comprehensive, 8-12-week rehabilitation program that focuses on assessment and treatment for service members who have sustained a mild to moderate traumatic brain injury (TBI) from military service since September 11, 2001, including symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Other mental health concerns, such as depression or anxiety, are also addressed as part of each client’s customized treatment program.
SHARE provides treatment and tools to successfully rehabilitate and return veterans to their families and communities. A broad continuum of care includes housing, physical and rehabilitation medicine, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech/language pathology, recreation therapy, nursing, case management, neuropsychology, psychology and counseling, chaplaincy and counseling for those in recovery for substance abuse. A life coach works with clients post-discharge to ensure they have the resources to continue their recovery.
All activities are housed in one centralized location and conducted by a collaborative medical and rehabilitation team, as opposed to fragmented systems clients have often experienced elsewhere. The program has helped more than 750 service members and serves as a model for other therapeutic centers across the country.
