Our Mission is to awaken the minds, bodies, and spirits of warriors whose traumatic memories and attempts at repressing them have left them emotionally numb, volatile, and closed off. Our program focuses on building skills that help veterans readjust to the civilian world and their work, relationships, and communities.


Located on a beautiful riverside property in the Great Smoky Mountains of western North Carolina. Equinox Ranch is committed to serving the needs of veterans living with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and MST (Military Sexual Trauma). We provide a support system, a peaceful refuge, and a pool of resources dedicated to Helping Warriors Heal.

The goal of Equinox Ranch is to provide an environment and support for combat veterans who are ready for change and willing to seek help from others.  We recognize that we can only help those that are willing to work at healing. We support veterans on their journey. Many of our activities encourage veterans to leave isolation and join a supportive group.

There is no charge to the veterans to attend the program.

If you or someone you know is interested in attending or would like more information. Call us at (828)356-8307 or email us by clicking the box below.
