Shepherd Center

The SHARE Military Initiative is a comprehensive rehabilitation program that focuses on assessment and treatment for post 9/11 service members who are experiencing functional difficulties due to mild/moderate traumatic brain injury and/or PTSD symptoms that do not require hospitalization.

The program is at no cost to service members and housing is also provided. Spouses/caregivers are encouraged to be involved in treatment and are able to reside in the veteran’s apartment during treatment as well. Program duration is a two week evaluation period by the interdisciplinary treatment team and further length of stay (approx. 4-12 wks) is determined by the client’s goals and clinician assessments. If a veteran successfully completes the SHARE program, a life coach follows them into their home community for up to a year duration to ensure continuity of services.
