More About REBOOT Recovery:
REBOOT Combat Recovery (REBOOT) was founded in 2011 by Evan and Dr. Jenny Owens. Dr. Jenny L. Owens is a licensed occupational therapist specializing in traumatic brain injury and PTSD. Evan A. Owens is certified in military ministry related to soldiers and families dealing with PTSD.  REBOOT is a 501(c)3 organization and is tax exempt.  REBOOT offers a 12-week combat trauma healing course to help combat veterans and their families heal from the spiritual and moral injuries of war associated with post-traumatic stress and combat trauma.
War wounds the soul. Over the past several years, the medical community has expanded its view of the impact of trauma. Now, many acknowledge that combat trauma directly impacts not only the mind and body but also the soul. This type of injury is called moral injury. Moral injury can manifest itself in the form of anger, anxiety, depression, social withdrawal, and, most tragically, suicide.  At REBOOT, we believe these symptoms are often linked to deep-rooted soul wounds related to unresolved grief, distrust of God/self/others, unforgiveness, bitterness, and loss of identity.
REBOOT “communities” are safe, private, and mostly veteran-led. Childcare and a pre-discussion meal are provided on a weekly basis to remove barriers of entry for families seeking help. We encourage the participation of spouses and affected family members because we know that trauma impacts the entire family.  For efforts outside of our lane of expertise, we partner with many government and non-profit agencies to provide the most wholistic care possible to these hurting families.
