Healing Past Wounds: Reboot Program Helps Incarcerated U.S. Veterans Recover from Military Trauma

CoreCivic | 5/24/24 8:19 AM

Trauma is unique. Combat-related trauma, which may result from one's exposure to dangerous or disturbing events in a warzone, manifests itself differently depending on the soldier's experience. Combat-related trauma can take a toll on someone's psychological and physical well-being, and even extend its impact to the family members of the military service member or veteran.  

Furthermore, studies show that approximately one-third of U.S. military veterans interact with the criminal justice system. Thus, the need for military trauma recovery resources is a critical component to the rehabilitation process that justice-involved individuals undergo.  

And through organizations like Reboot, which offers a 12-week military trauma recovery program tailored for incarcerated veterans, U.S. veterans in CoreCivic's care can access the resources needed to overcome the potentially debilitating effects that trauma has had on their lives. With time and commitment to their healing journey, veterans who have completed the Reboot program report improved pain interference, fatigue levels, sleep disturbance, anxiety and depressive symptoms, and social participation.  

WATCH below to hear Reboot participants at CoreCivic's Crowley County Correctional Facility in Olney Springs, Colorado, share how they are finding new peace as they dedicate themselves to their trauma recovery journey.
