1. Why can't I find information on Veterans Trauma Support Network when I search for it?
Veterans Trauma Support Network is a non-profit organization working under a parent company, Crisis Relief Network. Consequently, you will not be able to find information on VTSN specifically because everything is reported under Crisis Relief. You can find information about Crisis Relief on Charity Navigator, where we are very transparent about our financial information.
2. Where does the money I donate go?
The money we receive from the public is used towards keeping the services we offer to veterans free. For example, HOT therapy can cost in a range from $150 - $200 per session, and in order to have significant results, the individual needs to undergo 30 - 40 sessions. The money is used in helping maintain the device chamber used in the HOT therapy as well.
3. What services do you offer to veterans?
We offer free Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HOT) as well as TIPP Therapy for veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Both services are made free by the donations we receive from the public.
4.What is HOT and TIPP Therapy?
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy or HOT is a medical treatment that helps speed up the body’s natural healing process by increasing oxygen supply to damaged tissues. By breathing in 100% pure oxygen under high pressure in a chamber, oxygen can be quickly absorbed and dissolved in the body’s bloodstream at an accelerated rate.
Here are some of the known benefits of the treatment:
• Stimulates new blood vessel growth and increase blood flow
• Elevates the body’s natural immune defenses to fight infection and bacteria
• Reduces swelling that may occur around damaged areas

TIPP Therapy is a treatment created by our CEO Don Wood. Online and in-person therapy sessions are available. Below is an explanation of the structure of the program.
EDUCATION: First, we help you to gain a better understanding of how your mind has been working. We will discuss with you how the subconscious mind works and how we can walk you away from old behaviors. In addition, you will see how the next process of updating and clearing will work.
UPDATING & CLEARING: Next, we use advanced neuro-science techniques that clear the events and experiences that have been creating the error messages. The process is quick and efficient. In fact, most people ask “why did it take so long to find this answer and discover how my mind has been working.”
TRAINING THE MIND: Next, we have you listen to a series of audios designed to “Walk Out Behaviors” and “Walk in Gratitude”. You see, old habits don’t just stop immediately, you need to update your mind gradually with beneficial behaviors. These updated behaviors are designed by you, to reach your desired performance and preferred thought process. When your mind updates with your newly designed thought process, the old habits are eliminated, and the beneficial thoughts take over.
