Assistance for underserved military veterans.
Serving those who have helped us is at the core of this NGO’s ethos. Adapt & Overcome was founded by veterans, meaning it profoundly understands their unique challenges and unmet needs. The primary objective here is to inspire physical, mental, and emotional transformation in our heroes returning home from service — often battered by experiences that linger far beyond their tours of duty.
This can be anything but easy as Florida’s pool of 1.6 million veterans faces post-service adaptation dilemmas such as recovery or job re-entry after dedicating years to serving others on brutal battlegrounds overseas. They are frequently left without proper guidance or support during this transition phase. Many turn to pharmaceutical opioids provided by institutions like Veterans Affairs (VA), which fall short when addressing comprehensive wellness solutions available today.
Cue Adapt & Overcome goes beyond mere physical rehabilitation, as it dedicates itself to comprehensive well-being and strives to ignite positive transformations crucial for a triumphant return to civilian life.
Cue Adapt & Overcome’s initiatives are designed to bridge the existing resource gaps between conventional avenues and contemporary approaches tailored for the modern age. One such innovative approach is education on medical cannabis — an alternative method that emphasizes harm reduction over-reliance on prescription drugs.
But what truly sets Adapt & Overcome apart? Its resonating focus is on culture and community. It doesn’t just cater to services — it builds relationships.
