Financial Aid For At-Risk Veterans & Their Families

Our Goal Is To Kill PTSD Before It Kills Veterans And Their Families

Once A Soldier has endorsed the use of ketamine since 2018. Ketamine and other psychedelics continue to gain acceptance as leading a new hope to stop veteran and soldier suicide. With treatment centers growing in popularity across the USA, our mission includes being on the cutting edge to combat this crisis. These types of treatments stifle PTSD. Patients are quickly reduced to a non-suicidal level. Follow-up visits are typically needed following your initial treatment.

Treatment Center Guide

Since we are national in reach and requests, our proposed program to fund or partially-fund Ketamine Infusion Therapy will require the patients to research treatment centers in your local area. Ideally you will have already reached out and found one that you are most comfortable with so that we’d can verify them and get your treatment approved ASAP.

These centers will ideally all have:

  • Board Certified physician or Medical Director
    An active current medical license in their state
    A National Provider Identifier (NPI)
    A DEA license
    City business license

NEWS UPDATE: On January 29, 2022, we made history by being the first nonprofit to make a grant to a Veteran family for this type of treatment. The grant went to pay approximately 40% of the cost of ketamine-iv drip therapy. The Veteran and his wife both served in the Marines. For more information on this historic breakthrough, read our blog post about it. 

PTSD is contagious. Having witnessed or experienced the suicide of your loved one who had it, your post-traumatic stress disorder is the same. Your outcome doesn’t have to be. If you’re a surviving immediate family member of PTSD-induced Veteran suicide, this grant is meant for you.

If you or a loved one needs help dealing with PTSD, Veteran or family member, we can help. Fill out the form below and include your details of your situation. You can also call or email us.
