A VetCV Top Patriot Teaming Partner!
The Banyan Treatment Centers (Banyan) team truly understands the unique needs of Military and Veterans and their families and VetCV is proud to support and partner with this outstanding organization.
The trust that has been forged between TeamVetCV and the team at Banyan is based on our shared mission of helping people in the time of need. Joanne "Jojo" Devine who leads the National Military & Veterans business development initiatives for Banyan and VetCV CEO, Niels Andersen have worked together on a number of charity fundraising projects over the years and have also had a few late night calls working to get a Veteran in crisis the immediate help they needed.
The Banyan team understands that veteran substance abuse is a growing problem in the US. Many military members suffer from physical injuries and mental health problems when they return from deployment. Combat today is very different than it was 50+ years ago during World War II and the Vietnam War. The new war on terror has increased the trauma and emotional toll combat has had on our service members and their families. Prescription drug abuse is on the rise among veterans because many are treated with addictive narcotic pain medications for injuries. After an extended use, veterans may become dependent on these drugs, and, eventually an addiction can develop.
Check out the videos to hear the stories of how the Banyan team has helped Veterans and their families and also hear Jojo talk about "Why" she is so committed and passionate about what she does!
TeamVetCV fully supports the mission of this important Patriot Teaming Partner, if you or someone you know needs help, we certainly encourage you contact the Banyan team.
