Special Operations Care Fund (SOC-F) and Tomahawk Charitable Solutions to Support Leader in Neurotherapeutics to Provide Breakthrough Treatment Technology for Special Operations Veterans

SAN DIEGO, CA, September 5, 2019 – Special Operations Care Fund (SOC-F), Tomahawk Charitable Solutions (TCS), and Brain Treatment Center San Diego (BTC San Diego) are pleased to announce their collaboration for BTC San Diego to offer an innovative and promising treatment modality for special operations military service members for traumatic brain injury (TBI) and Post-traumatic Stress (PTS).

The dynamic collaboration between SOC-F, TCS, and BTC San Diego offers a unique opportunity for service members struggling with symptoms such as lack of focus, chronic sleep disruption, and cognitive fog. Over the next 18 months, this collaboration will facilitate treatment by BTC San Diego of Special Operations Forces (SOF) veterans. SOC-F and TCS will bring valuable resources to support BTC San Diego’s pioneering work with the military community, and they are excited for the transformative opportunities the collaboration will bring to those who served.

Over the past six years, BTC San Diego has used Magnetic EEG/EKG-guided Resonance Therapy (MeRTSM) to help military service members and is conducting clinical trials with the Department of Defense and US Special Operations Command. MeRTSM  is a patented process that uses computational neuroanalytics to build a personalized treatment protocol aimed at restoring each individuals neurological health. This process takes approximately 30 minutes per day over a 4-6 week period. MeRTSM was developed by Wave Neuroscience (Wave Neuro) – a leader in the non-invasive neuromodulation space.

Here is what service members who have completed MeRT at Brain Treatment Center say about the treatment:

SOF, USMC Veteran:

“Within 4 days of being treated, I was sleeping through the night. My anger had subsided significantly, and I was smiling and enjoying things again. I was able to focus and concentrate on information much more efficiently and easily, and did not get lost in conversation as I had prior to coming here. My chronic headaches had ceased, my balance was returning, and my ringing in my ears, (tinnitus) had also ceased.”

SOF, US Navy Veteran:

“Besides offering the most effective treatment I’ve experienced, the BTC and MeRT promise to accelerate results that might take months or years through traditional treatments.  I feel like BTC reintroduced me to the person I can be, and put me back in control.”

SOF, US Army Veteran:

“After my 6th treatment, I slept 8 hours straight, I usually averaged 3-5 hours max. In the morning it felt like a light bulb turned on in my head… clarity of thought that I haven’t experienced in years.”

    I have never served in the military. I had a childhood that consisted of being taken away from my mother at 6 when she would leave me home alone all night to do drugs. I had nightmares of a man in an executioners mask following me around with an axe then and after. Then I lived with her again.
    She dropped me off a state away at my grandmas at 13 without telling anyone. I lived with her and at times a verbally abusive father that clearly did not want me. I also had my aunt kill herself and another aunt attempt to when living with my grandma. I saw the bloody aftermath. I have dealt with ptsd and abandonment issues all my life. I’m in my mid 40’s and no longer work, but am the happiest I’ve been in my life due to some fairly basic and common meds. I guess my point is that one must be willing to admit they have issues before they are able to deal with them. No matter what gets you to a good place there are so many options to help. I know military people that joined right out of high school and have a certain kind of mind set than myself that just comes from the training and mentality needed to do what you are asked to do in war. The fact that 22 commit suicide day is soul crushing. Please don’t be afraid to talk to people about it and air it out and get help. There is always hope and the possibility of a great life for you and your loved ones.
