COMBAT RECOVERY COURSE BEGINS SEPTEMBER 6TH 

Combat trauma is a serious concern in our country today.  It not only affects the veterans, it can have a negative impact on families and communities.  Combat trauma can manifest itself through issues like anger, anxiety, depression, social withdrawal, and most tragically, suicide.  About 22 veterans commit suicide EVERY DAY in the U.S.  Symptoms are often linked to deep-rooted "soul wounds" related to unresolved grief, distrust of God/self/others, survivor's guilt, unforgiveness, bitterness, and loss of identity. 

REBOOT Combat Recovery is a nonprofit organization that helps combat veterans and their families heal from the moral and spiritual wounds of war.  We accomplish this by facilitating a faith-based 12-week healing course in local communities.  The course, which is not a support group, provides practical tools for service members and families dealing with the after-effects of combat.  Participants learn skills that aid in their healing while helping to build community.  We also encourage and welcome spouses and other affected family members to attend, since trauma impacts the entire family.  The REBOOT course is veteran-led and is FREE to participants.  Meetings are held weekly in a safe and private environment.  A hot meal and childcare are provided, all with the purpose of removing barriers to families seeking help. 

The next REBOOT course in our area starts Wednesday, September 6, 2017 at Athens Christian Church at 1411 East Route 29 in Athens.  The course starts with a shared meal from 6:00-6:30 pm, and the meeting is from 6:30-7:30 pm.  To register, please go to REBOOTRECOVERY.COM and click on the Athens, IL location.  If you have questions, please contact John Richardson at 217-416-5527 or jprichardson824@gmail.com or John Swinford at johns@athenschristian.net.
