The Intrepid Spirit is located on the grounds of Fort Campbell, Kentucky, and will provide the most advanced diagnosis and treatment protocols for wounded service members who suffer with traumatic brain injury (TBI) and post-traumatic stress through the use of a multidisciplinary team, holistic alternatives and Warrior and Family Center Care. The mission of the Intrepid Spirit is directly aligned to the Army’s concussion and mild TBI management strategy to educate, train, treat and track service members. Dr. Bret Logan has been designated the director of the Intrepid Spirit.
The National Intrepid Center of Excellence (NICoE) is a DoD institute dedicated to providing cutting-edge evaluation, treatment planning, research and education for service members and their families dealing with the complex interactions of mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) and psychological health (PH) conditions.The NICoE was created to focus the collected wisdom and knowledge of our military, federal, academic and private industry partners to define the pattern of the disease state, identify definitive diagnostic criteria, advance novel treatments and share that knowledge with each other. Ultimately, together we can return our wounded, ill and injured service members back to productive lives.The NICoE aims to be a leader in advancing traumatic brain injury and psychological health treatment, research and education. With its dedicated staff, the NICoE seeks to be an instrument of hope, healing, discovery, and learning for service members recovering from TBI and PH conditions.
