Mission 22 and Full Spectrum Health have partnered to create the Warrior Integration Now (WIN) program. This is a twelve month program with the goal to eliminate or reduce the symptoms of trauma. It does this by addressing the underlying physiological and psychological imbalances. By the end of the program you will feel calmer in your body and more connected to those around you.
When you change your physiology you change your psychology. When you change your psychology you change the way you see the world and your place in it. When you change that, you change the mission that drives you. WIN is a one year program that teaches veterans warrior/leader skills to re-establish their transformational role in their families and communities. The method works through balancing hormone and brain chemical imbalances, creating greater alignment with your authentic self. To support this change, key skills of self mastery are taught for greater engagement with heart and mind.
You will start by having an extensive lab test done to see what is going on on a physiological level. You then meet with the doctor and together will create a personalized twelve month program that is geared specifically for you. Labs can be done where you live and all appointments with the Dr. can be done remotely if you are not local to the Chicago area. This program is all at zero cost to you.
Crossfit, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and Judo Sponsorships
Our treatment programs are made better when veterans are also involved in great communities like Crossfit or BJJ. We offer full sponsorships to gyms for anyone going through our Mission 22 programs.
We also offer stand alone gym sponsorships to veterans who are not able to afford them.
If you or someone you know needs help funding training or if your gym wants to become a partner gym, please contact us.
