Who We Are

Healing Arizona Veterans (HAV) uses donations to sponsor the treatment of military veterans suffering from wartime TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) and PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). The treatment utilizes Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) and adjunctive therapies at private facilities. Read more about HBOT and adjunctive therapies.

These veterans’ evaluations and treatments are covered by HAV, a grassroots all-volunteer 501C3 organization.
