With TBI a constant struggle, it looked like I would become depended on others to live life. I reached out to the Patriot Project and three days later I had a job!. Thank you Kenny for taking a chance on me, not only did I get a job, I got my self respect back, Todd Davies
Struggling with addiction seemed to be a way of life after being discharged. I heard Kenny speak at a church, He said if anyone wanted to work to give him a call, I did.
I started working right away for the Patriot Project and soon got my confidence back along with a sense of pride. Life isn't always easy, but if you keep trying ,you never fail. Eric Lars Andrews
Update March 17 2021
I think to myself sometimes, When does this madness end?. I always come to the same conclusion, it ends when I stop being involved and for me that's not an option. I love you my Brother, and I know you love me like a fat kid loves cake! I will continue, I will push forward.
Rest easy Eric, job well done, carry on. Kenny

Your spirit with me , I will continue to advance towards victory. So Chris, SEMPER FI, CARRY ON, JOB WELL DONE, Kenny
"My office has referred Veterans to the Patriot Project for employment and have had a very high success rate"
Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor
“We are proud to provide our services to our service members, veterans, and their families that serve this great country of ours”, commented Bradley Stein, Director and Senior Counselor at The South Suburban Council.
The Council understands that active duty and retired members of the armed forces are not immune to substance misuse that can affect the rest of society.
The stresses of deployment combined with military culture are largely accountable for improper use of substances in both military members and civilians alike. Zero-tolerance policies and stigma can often pose difficulties in identifying substance abuse in many military personnel. Furthermore, lack of confidentiality deters many who need treatment from actually seeking it. The South Suburban Council and Patriot Project USA understand that addiction, substance misuse, and mental health recovery requires more than putting "the plug in the jug".
We have embraced the dual diagnosis model by incorporating PTSD recognition into our treatment plans. This allows us to treat both conditions adequately and ensures that neither of them go unnoticed. Doing this addresses the cognitive impulsivity behind substance abuse disorders, but more importantly, provides the resources necessary to control the deeper-rooted issues that fuel them.
We are fully aware that treatment evolves over time and we are committed to evolving in every way that we can to meet each Veteran's individual needs for recovery. This, we promise you.
