About HBOT 4 Heroes

Many of our nation’s heroes suffer from debilitating neurological damage while selflessly serving in our military. Hidden brain injuries often prompt many veterans to take their own lives to end the agony. Recognizing this critical issue, North Carolina passed 2019 HB50 which authorized the use of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy to treat NC veterans with TBI and/or PTSD. The passing of this bill has demonstrated an astounding 95% efficacy rate of HBOT among NC veterans.

The success documented from treating 40 veterans entering the program in 2021 and 2022 has been eye opening to many. Veterans and their families are now experiencing new beginnings after enduring immense suffering from as far back as the Vietnam War.

However, the demand for HBOT far surpasses the current access, which has been limited to Extivita-RTP located in the NC triangle. Subsidized by corporate and individual sponsors, the cost of treatments at Extivita were reduced to $75 per 90-minute session to the state. It has become clear that the need to increase access to affordable, high-quality HBOT requires additional resources, leading to the formation of HBOT4Heroes (501C3).


The Mission of HBOT4Heroes is to enhance the quality and longevity of life for our nation’s heroes by:

  • Expanding Access: Locate HBOT clinics with sufficient startup capital and establish a sustainable business model throughout North Carolina. By increasing access to safe and effective Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, we aim to reach hundreds of thousands of veterans in need.
  • Building on Success: Capitalize on Extivita-RTP’s successful provision of holistic therapies to develop self-sustaining clinics. We will leverage their achievements to create a network of clinics that can cater to the growing demand for HBOT.
  • Empowering Local Professionals: Facilitate the transition of self-sustaining clinics to capable and dedicated local medical professionals, expanding HBOT access and fostering local expertise.

Through these initiatives, HBOT4Heroes is committed to extending the benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, improving the lives of our nation’s heroes, and ensuring the well being of North Carolina’s community.
