War: “The War Comes Home”, a documentary on Post Traumatic Stress Disorder among Veterans

Last June, we shared about a member at Jacob’s Well who founded The Warriors’ Hope Project–a program to inform Iraq & Afghanistan veterans about Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and offer encouragement and hope to get through it. Now, Adam’s project is part of a larger one, Save A Warrior, that was recently featured in a CNN documentary called “The War Comes Home.”

This Fall, Save a Warrior and The Warriors’ Hope Project will host Kansas City’s first ever “War Detox” program–a five day event connecting war veterans to the resources that truly help. Adam explains:

“These Warriors have already done everything they can: they’ve tried medications, lengthy VA inpatient treatment programs, a variety of therapy options, etc. They know, and we know, that Save A Warrior’s program is their best chance for recovery, as no other program has demonstrated a success rate that is comparable.
