River Walking Sticks has also partnered with Save A Warrior, located right here in Columbus, Ohio. Save A Warrior has changed many lives through their incredible "War Detox" program. This program supports the healing from PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress), helps active military and veterans through trauma.
For a lot of veterans, the healing begins with the heart. Save A Warrior engages in ritual storytelling and the sharing of their experiences. They locate, identify and resolve the psychological pain once and for all.
They teach and practice long-term behavior exercises, allowing the veterans to focus on recovery and the healing process.
Ten years ago, Jake Clark started Save A Warrior out of the trunk of his car in California. Today, they have served more than 1400 veterans and have impacted thousands of lives across the country.
Save A Warrior is in the process of building the first and only "National Center of Excellence" facility to help and manage PTSD.
River Walking Sticks also donates a portion of sales directly to Save A Warrior to assist in their efforts to help save lives and get veterans back on their feet and living a fulfilling life.
