FARGO — The Cass County Veterans Services Office is partnering with a local clinic to offer hyperbaric oxygen treatments for veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety or depression.

The county's partnership is with Healing with Hyperbarics of North Dakota, a clinic that's offered hyperbaric treatments since 2018. The treatments involve breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized environment.

Grants are available for veterans with treatable ailments, including concussions and traumatic brain injuries.

Veterans can now receive an initial consultation, up to 30 hyperbaric oxygen treatments and follow-up consultations at no cost.

Veterans interested in the treatment should contact Cass County Veteran Services Director Chris Deery at deeryc@casscountynd.gov or 701-241-5756.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
