About Us

Our Mission:

Assisting our Combat Injured Veterans to achieve recovery through the use of competitive activities to develop and empower the Veteran with the skills, motivation, and sense of purpose necessary to rise above their injuries and rediscover their confidence and greater self-worth.

Who we are:

The Adapt & Overcome Program is a registered 501c(3) Non-Profit based out of Jacksonville North Carolina

We are a national non-profit, non-governmental 501c(3) tax-exempt organization. All contributions made to the organization are deductible under section 170 of the IRS Code. But most importantly, we’re a dedicated group of Veterans who are focused on helping Veterans and family members of Veterans.

We served our country. And now it’s our privilege to serve our Military and Veterans and to provide an

opportunity for the rest of America to express its thanks and gratitude.

When our Military and Veterans go to an event for free, we want them to enjoy, relax, spend precious time with their families

and feel a part of American life. That’s what we are committed to creating, every day. Join us.

The  Adapt and Overcome Program goal is to assist Veterans with the recovery and adjustments back into civilian life, to empower

veterans with the skills needed to adapt and overcome the following health conditions:   
  Panic attacks  
Bad Nightmares 
Agoraphobia (anxiety in crowded places or places that are difficult to escape )   
    sleep disturbance 
  Suicidal thoughts 
   Reclusive behavior

General Information:
Does competitive activities really help the veteran’s symptoms of PTSD?

Yes, Competitive activities are something that can help individual veterans to adjust, desensitize, and decompress from the stresses that
can result from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The Activities selected by Adapt and Overcome for veterans to participate in are
selected to maximize the recovery of each individual veteran. Through these actives we can reconnect the veteran to the competitive
nature which is a large part of the Military personality, this restores  the drive, pride, and sense of purpose that many returning veterans with
disabilities can often find they have lost after spending long months or years in the DOD and VA medical systems. While the DOD and VA both
are doing great at ensuring our veterans physical recovery, often they allow veterans to fall to the wayside when it comes to the emotional and
mental recovery that is needed, our focus is on ensuring that maximum overall recovery is achieved for each individual veteran.
