The mission of Operation Rubix is to provide a network of options to Veterans and their families. Our focus and idea is that “not one size shoe fits all.” It is true that treatment options may work for some but not others. Operation Rubix is designed to offer different types of treatment so that the veterans and families can feel safe and comfortable with the provider they choose. We believe that a veteran can find peace within if they have the right resource available to them. Operation Rubix will strive to use local resources in Sarasota County to provide different treatment options for our local veterans and their families. We strive to provide traditional therapies along with alternative therapies. We serve to fill the gaps that an over worked and under staffed VA system cannot cover by providing family therapy and help for family members of veterans.
To create a network of professional therapists and legal experts in the Sarasota/Manatee area that support veterans. To provide a variety of options for veterans within the mental health and law communities. The Mental Health field will be a combination of traditional and alternative therapies for local veterans dealing with issues that stem from service related circumstances or that existed prior to military service but have now been exacerbated by the veteran’s time in service.
The average service member is returning home with a host of issues that are not always addressed by the VA system. This is due to an overburdened system, veterans unable to locate effective services, or, in some cases, a general lack of trust that grows in the minds of veterans about the VA healthcare system. This program is designed to provide a network of mental health providers that offer different treatment options so that the veteran can choose from the option to find the right fit for him or her. Throughout our work, we aim to raise funds so that the veteran is not responsible for payment and that the mental health provider can be assured that their time will be compensated.
Our goal is to bring awareness and healing to victims of anxiety disorders such as PTSD, OCD, Bi-Polar, and other problems such as depression, insomnia, personality disorders, chemical dependencies and psychosis that plagues our veterans. Lastly, our objective includes providing services to the nuclear families of the veteran(s), to include parents, spouses, and children. By helping to reinforce the veteran’s closest companions and intimate world, she or he will have a support system by their side every day.
