Higher Ground Military uses therapeutic recreation to facilitate a change in perspective, giving injured service members the physical skills, confidence, and coping strategies necessary for a successful reintegration into their families and home communities.
Higher Ground is recognized as one of the premier rehabilitation programs in the country by the Department of Defense, military medical centers, and veteran service organizations. We serve military personnel and veterans with Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs), Post Traumatic Stress (PTS) and other polytrauma. Our camps serve 8-10 participants and are designed for specific populations – couples, men, and women. We create an intimate atmosphere where participants connect and share struggles related to battle trauma and injuries, while supporters share challenges about health care, parenting, and their role as caregivers. Our highly trained staff of certified recreational therapists strategically implements activities that highlight individual abilities, leading to an overall improvement in quality of life. HG commits to three years of follow-up care for each participant, helping to connect participants to their local resources and dedicating a reintegration budget for each participant to help them achieve their individual goals.
