Jason sat down with the Former Special Forces and Warriors Heart Co-Founder Tom Spooner on the Knockin' Doorz Down podcast. They discussed Tom’s service to our nation in the U.S. Army which spanned nearly 21 years (1990-2011). Tom is in recovery from alcoholism as well he suffered a traumatic brain injury during his time in the service. This led him on the path to not only become an advocate for others suffering from addiction but soldiers and first responders also suffering from addiction and mental health issues.
His military career included time in the 82nd Airborne, as a Green Beret in the US Army’s 7th Special Forces Group, and, ultimately, in the US Army’s 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment Delta as an Operator. Since retiring from the military in 2011, Spooner has successfully enabled thousands of warriors to acknowledge their struggles, seek treatment, and understand that they are not alone. Spooner joined forces with successful treatment providers Josh and Lisa Lannon to open Warriors Heart in 2016. Warriors Heart is the first and ONLY private and accredited residential treatment program in the U.S. that is exclusively for warriors (active-duty military, veterans, first responders, and EMTs/paramedics) that helps American Warriors struggling with drug and alcohol addiction and other co-occurring issues (PTSD, mild TBI, trauma, depression and co-occurring issues). Tom speaks from the heart about personally struggling with chemical dependencies, PTSD, mild TBI, and more to help others.
