Transforming Lives, One Breath at a Time

At HBOT4Heroes, we recognize the silent battle many of our nation’s bravest face long after they have served in the military. The hidden wounds of debilitating neurological damage, often manifesting as Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), have led too many Veterans to a path of despair. To address this critical issue, North Carolina enacted the groundbreaking 2019 HB50 bill, authorizing the use of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) for treating our state’s Veterans suffering from these conditions. The impact has been profound: a staggering 95% efficacy rate in HBOT treatments among NC Veterans.

A Journey of Healing and Renewal

Our initial programs in 2021 and 2022, which involved treating 40 Veterans, have opened many eyes to the transformative power of HBOT. Veterans, including those bearing scars from conflicts as far back as the Vietnam War, along with their families, are now witnessing remarkable turnarounds in their lives. These stories of renewal are not just heartwarming; they are testaments to the potential of HBOT in providing much-needed healing.

Bridging the Gap

Despite these successes, the demand for HBOT outstrips the availability at our preferred provider, Extivita-RTP, located in North Carolina’s Triangle. Thanks to the generous support of corporate and individual sponsors, we’ve managed to subsidize the cost of treatments to $75 per 90-minute session. Yet, it’s evident that expanding access to affordable, high-quality HBOT is a pressing need. This realization led to the birth of HBOT4Heroes, a dedicated 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.


At HBOT4Heroes, our mission is to enhance the quality of life and longevity for our nation’s heroes. We are committed to:


  • Expanding Access: Our goal is to establish preferred clinics under HBOT4Heroes throughout North Carolina, ensuring that this life-changing therapy is within reach of the hundreds of thousands of Veterans in need. We aim to provide the necessary startup capital and develop sustainable business models for these clinics.
  • Building on Success: Drawing inspiration from Extivita-RTP’s successful holistic approach, we plan to develop a network of self-sustaining clinics. These centers will not only meet the growing demand for HBOT but also serve as beacons of hope for Veterans and their families.
  • Empowering Local Professionals: We believe in the power of community. By transitioning these clinics to the hands of capable and passionate local medical professionals, we aim to expand HBOT access while nurturing local expertise.
