At Spectrum Therapeutics, we focus on listening to Veterans, so we can better understand how we can make the greatest impact.

These are a few of the organizations and programs we have supported, financially or otherwise:

Wounded Warriors

In November 2020, Spectrum ran a fundraiser for Wounded Warriors and raised enough money to support the development of a new program called “Surviving Spouses”.

 

This first-of-its-kind program has been clinically developed to support Veteran and First Responder Spouses who have lost their partner in the line of duty or from death by suicide.

It is a five-day, clinically-facilitated group program that helps participants recognize the function of emotions and offers evidenced-based opportunities to understand and process traumatic grief.

 

“This is the first time I’ve been in an environment that felt safe for me to share important pieces of my traumatic loss experience while remaining connected and aware of my body, my emotions, with the surviving spouses in the group.”  - Angela Gevaudan lost her husband, RCMP Constable Fabrice Gevaudan, in the line of duty in 2014 in Moncton, NB

 

“The incredible contribution we’ve received from Spectrum Therapeutics has benefited injured couples, through the provision of Couples Overcoming PTSD Everyday (COPE) program and supported our ability to develop and deliver our first-of-its-kind Surviving Spouses Program—built specifically for spouses who have lost their partner in the line of duty or as a result of death by suicide.”

-  Scott Maxwell, Executive Director, Wounded Warriors Canada.

Team Rubicon

In 2020, Team Rubicon Canada (TRC) was the recipient of a $50,000 grant from Canopy Growth to support their Resilient Communities Initiative, which aims to build resilient communities and individuals better able to lead, weather and respond to natural disasters and crises. TRC's efforts always focus on local impact: they partner with our local communities and neighbourhoods to serve them best before, during and after disaster strikes. Team Rubicon Canada is a registered charity that serves communities by mobilizing veterans to continue their service, leveraging their skills and experience to help people prepare, respond, and recover from disasters and humanitarian crises. Through continued service, TRC seeks to fulfill a secondary mission of providing our veterans with three things they often lose after leaving the military: a purpose, gained through disaster response; community, built around serving with others; and self, from recognizing the impact one individual can make.

The Veteran Farmer

Spectrum works closely with the Veteran Farmer to help support Veteran education nationally. 

The Veteran Farmer is a Veteran-run education and support center operated by Lloyd Farmer and his wife Autumn. Their goal is to educate Veterans and civilians across the country on the therapeutic benefits of cannabis. Their programs are designed to create a support network vital for coping with PTSD as well as programs for cannabis users hosted in a socially accepting environment which is integral to healing.
