Frequently Asked Questions

  • Avalon Action Alliance is the post-trauma wellness nonprofit helping veterans, first

    responders, and their families gain control over issues related to brain health and

    mental wellness. Avalon provides a single point of contact and one integrative

    assessment for the symptoms of post-traumatic stress (PTS), mild traumatic

    brain injury (TBI) and substance abuse (SA) to identify and guide clients to the most effective

    clinical or non-clinical pathway towards healing.

  • Through our comprehensive approach encompassing both clinical and non-clinical treatments, we are forging a seamless, personalized, and transformative path towards proven results. Avalon is a collaborative resource providing effective care for the three interrelated post-trauma impacts that veterans, first responders and their families endure: PTS, TBI, and substance abuse. There are no out-of pocket expenses for care.

  • Avalon and its partner programs make every effort to provide care at no out-of-pocket

    expenses to clients.

  • PTS
    We have partnered with Boulder Crest Foundation to implement their Warrior PATHH programs based on the science of Post-traumatic Growth through non-clinical training delivered by highly qualified peer guides.

    approvals needed by their place of employment. In some cases, flexible treatment

    options, such as a modified schedule or telehealth, may be available to work around

    employment or school schedules.

    national network and will arrange travel to the facility best-suited for the client.

    clients to develop the best customized treatment plan for you that puts you on a

    wellness and brain health.
