Eagle Oak Retreat is the only location in the Texas to offer the Warrior PATHH program for our combat veterans, first responders, and their families.

We are proud partners with the Boulder Crest Foundation.

What is Warrior PATHH?

Warrior PATHH (Progressive Alternative Training Helping Heroes) is the first training program to enable our nation’s combat veterans and first responders to transform deep struggle into profound strength and lifelong Posttraumatic Growth (PTG). Warrior PATHH is a 90-day, non-pharmacological, peer-delivered training program that begins with a 7-day intensive and immersive initiation. This is followed by 3 months of dedicated support, training, accountability, and connection from a team of trained combat veterans and first responders.

Warrior PATHH was developed by the Boulder Crest Foundation, a national nonprofit organization working to ensure that service members, veterans, first responders, and their families can live great lives in the aftermath of stress, struggle, and trauma. Warrior PATHH was developed in collaboration with Dr. Richard Tedeschi, the founder of Posttraumatic Growth (PTG), and Dr. Bret Moore, a twice-deployed Army psychologist.


Who is Eligible for PATHH?

Warrior PATHH is available to men and women combat veterans and first responders. No clinical diagnosis or prior mental health care is required to participate.

  • Participants MUST be active, retired, or separated from service. We support all military, first responder, reservists and National Guard members.

  • We define a “combat veteran” as anyone who has deployed, or supported a combat zone.

  • We define a “first responder” as anyone who serves their community as a Police Officer, Sheriff’s Deputy, Fire Fighter, EMS, Health Care Worker, or any Federal Law Enforcement or Intelligence Agency personnel.

Once we receive your application, a dedicated member of the Warrior PATHH network will reach out to you within 4 business days to schedule an interview.

Why Warrior PATHH Works

Warrior PATHH works for a number of reasons:

  • Warrior PATHH is built on the decades-old science of Posttraumatic Growth

  • Warrior PATHH is built on a foundation of transparency, honesty, and mutuality. We do not ask anything of participants that our guides are not doing or have not already done

  • Warrior PATHH taps the natural skills, abilities and resources of Warriors

  • Warrior PATHH connects Warriors who are on similar paths and builds new teams that hold each other accountable

  • Warrior PATHH utilizes small group sizes (8 students) and low instructor/student ratios

  • Warrior PATHH represents years of effort, experience, and understanding into precisely what is required to ensure our Warriors can come all the way home

  • Warrior PATHH is committed to making lasting and sustainable changes in the lives of combat veterans to ensure they find their path and stay on it
