What Our Clients Say:

“Being a veteran of 12 years in the military and two tours in Afghanistan I have taken a few programs over the years to deal with PTSD and mental health issues … Without a doubt the group based program at Boreal Wellness was exactly what I needed this time … The complete body, mind and spirit approach taken by all the staff was key for me and was not something I had experienced in other programs. The follow up aftercare has helped to monitor my goals and continuing treatment as well.” – JV
