Acronym for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, PTSD can affect not just war veterans but also other people including teenagers and kids that have gone through some traumatic event in their lives. These events imprint on their minds leaving behind a lasting impression that can affect their present and future. People with PTSD have trouble with their day-to-day living long after the event has passed. At USA Re-Boot Resort, we work on repairing their damaged psyches and helping people come to terms with their pain in a supportive, friendly, understanding environment.

Awbry Rebel – War Veteran
In the words of Awbry Rebel, a war veteran who served in Germany, post-Vietnam between 1976 and 1979, he admits to “having a rough day” when he arrived at the resort. Even so, he was determined to keep an open mind having admitted that he needed help. Awbry focused more on his surroundings and the natural beauty of the resort. He was pleasantly surprised at the many different kinds of therapy available, especially the equestrian sessions. Awbry talks about how he learned to be around horses when growing up but was delighted at the new approach the handlers had. With equestrian therapy, he learned to assert and calm himself. The healthy meals and relaxation he received at the resort helped him turn his life around.
