Adaptive Performance Center ~ https://www.adaptiveperformancecenter.org (406)281-3848 "From PTSD, depression and anxiety to amputees, and para/quadriplegics we are here to help them in a way that just mental health and rehabilitative services cannot achieve. Too often veterans with disabilities are categorized into a "percentage of improvement" from a rehabilitation standpoint. Once they reach that number they are released from therapeutic services and expected to adapt to the limitations they have without access to services that will help them improve. We believe those numbers can be much higher with the right of facility.
A fitness environment allows veterans to feel more conventional as they work their body. The psychological impact of not feeling like they are in a clinical setting is one very large hurdle that can be overcome. In a rehabilitation facility, an individual tends to feel "sick" or like there is something wrong with them. In a fitness center, the psychological belief is that of normalcy, strength and possibility. Our fitness environment encourages reintegration among veterans and we are exclusive to military personnel. We live by the motto “move your body, heal your mind” and we use physical fitness to improve PTSD, limit depression, and lessen anxiety. "

They must always be a “hard target.” This mindset becomes part of who they are through training and combat. This results in the undesired effect of unintentionally carrying this mindset permanently. Stress, fatigue, poor sleep, and hypertension become normal to the Special Operator regardless of their present situation. This causes the symptoms to get progressively worse as it can take a toll on relationships, lead to excessive alcohol consumption and depression. We want to help them find balance by focusing on the mind and practicing different forms of mindfulness to assist in controlling those thoughts, emotions to ultimately help improve the Special Operator’s overall effectiveness. We do not claim that our programs are treatments, nor do we claim to be therapists. We do however claim our programs will allow the Eagles to reach down within themselves and find what triggers them and what makes them tick. We will guide them through adventures that involve outdoor recreational activities, mindfulness, meditation practices, arts and various other methods of healing.
