The War We Fight

The war we fight is not against flesh and blood. For many service members, the war doesn’t end when they come home. The battle continues against an unseen enemy who is attacking their mind and spirit. And in too many cases, the enemy is winning.

Trauma happens to our veterans during combat, but too often, that trauma is compounded by a series of poor decisions upon returning home. It is as if this combat trauma has reduced their spiritual defense systems and left them vulnerable to a myriad of even more dangerous life choices that may lead to addiction, homelessness or even suicide.



Our Model

Our model includes a 12 week course that serves the entire family. Many locations will provide a meal and childcare. After completing our trauma healing course, graduates advance to focus on rebuilding strong character, engaging in healthy community and reclaiming leadership roles. REBOOT upholds the “teach a man to fish” ideal and equips our members to move past REBOOT and live an abundant life. In other words, we know we’ve been successful when our graduates don’t need us anymore.


TOPICS WE COVER DURING OUR 12 WEEK COURSE

A Wounded Soul
The Roots of Trauma
A Restored Soul
Stop the Bleeding (Making Wise Decisions)
Be Free (from False Guilt)
The Cost of Unforgiveness
When You’ve Loved and Lost

Our Results

Through REBOOT Combat Recovery, combat veterans and their families are experiencing breakthrough in their war against PTSD. We are building communities of healing where healing is needed most and reaching these veterans during the critical window of time before things go from bad to worse.
We always tell our members that we can’t promise them that their symptoms will improve, but we do promise that they can live a life full of joy and purpose despite their symptoms. Our programs are attended voluntarily and the results speak for themselves.

Read More About Jenny

Dr. Jenny Owens has worked as an occupational therapist with veterans with mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) and post-traumatic stress (PTS) since 2007. Through her experience at the Warrior Resiliency and Recovery Center at Ft. Campbell, KY Jenny developed an expertise in the evaluation and treatment of the cognitive, visual, and psychosocial sequelae of mTBI and PTS.

During her tenure at Ft. Campbell, she helped developed Ft. Campbell’s Military Functional Assessment Program, the first of its kind in the nation, to collectively assess service members’ ability to perform key job requirements prior to returning them to the front lines.

By 2013, Jenny had shifted her focus from clinical work to engage in a research project exploring cognitive rehabilitation for executive dysfunction among a military mTBI population. As an author, she has contributed to the mTBI Rehabilitation Toolkit (2015), AOTA’s Self Paced Clinical Course for Traumatic Brain Injury, and Occupational Therapy for Physical Dysfunction, 7th ed. (2013).

In 2011, Jenny founded REBOOT Combat Recovery, a non-profit that provides free face-to- face programs to help service members and their families heal from the spiritual wounds of war.

OUR HISTORY

PAST
WHERE WE BEGAN
PAST
Founded in 2011 by Occupational Therapist, Dr. Jenny Owens, REBOOT began serving military families at Fort Campbell, KY. Built on the belief that the spirit of a person is worth fighting for, the success rates of the 12-week combat trauma healing course quickly began to spread within the military community.
PRESENT
WHERE WE ARE
PRESENT
In 2014, REBOOT added its first service location outside of a military base when it began services in Oklahoma City. Based on that success, REBOOT is now partnering with other nonprofits and churches around the country to offer combat trauma healing.
FUTURE
WHERE WE'RE GOING
FUTURE
REBOOT has a vision to change the way trauma is treated for the next generation of combat veterans. Armed with data to prove our effectiveness, we are well on our way to reshaping the traditional care model to include not just the mind and body, but the soul as well.
