Veteran Group Sessions

We partner with the Volunteers of America Bill Daniels Veteran Services Center to provide free group sessions for veterans/people with military services. Our current group sessions are Mood Mastery and AcuDetox.

Mood Mastery is an opportunity to explore strategies and skills to promote positive feelings and increase healthy behaviors. During the sessions, you will develop the skills to manage your emotions in a healthier way, so you can get unstuck, start overcoming obstacles you are facing, and gain peace of mind.

AcuDetox is a safe and standardized ear acupuncture protocol designed to treat addictions, behavioral health, trauma, and provide disaster relief. It can help with withdrawal and cravings from substances including drugs, caffeine, and alcohol.
