The men and women who fight for this country make enormous sacrifices in order to protect our freedom. We rejoice when our soldiers return home, however, the battle doesn’t end there. Often, they are left with terrible physical and emotional scars and have trouble adjusting back to civilian life. Pure Flix is proud to partner with Reboot, an organization dedicated to helping veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other challenges. Together we can help restore the lives of these heroes once they’ve returned home.
The Mission of Reboot
For many veterans, returning home does not end the battles they face. Removed from the battlefield, they continue to fight a war against an unseen enemy that attacks their minds and spirits. Often time, this new “enemy” takes control, and the temptation to give in to addiction, depression, and poor decisions grows. Reboot seeks to strengthen spiritual defenses and enable veterans to overcome the symptoms that stem from the trauma that they experienced during combat.
The goal is not to put a Band-aid on the problems that veterans face, but give them and their families the tools they need to have long-term success and happiness on their own.
The Method of Reboot
The Reboot model includes a 12-week course that is designed for veterans and their families. Many locations provide meals and childcare, as well as a course designed to help them move on from the trauma they have suffered. Reboot aims to ensure that these heroes are equipped to lead an abundant life at home, in their community, and professionally.
The 12-week course takes participants through subjects including:
- The Wounded Soul
- The Roots of Trauma
- Freedom from False Guilt
- Depression and Suicide
- Made on Purpose
- Going Through the Valley
Throughout the 12-week course, veterans receive encouragement and support from others who have walked through the same valley. They are led by real-life examples of how to live a life of purpose, faith and love as a civilian.

The Success of Reboot
Reboot has over 85 course locations in 23 states and in Australia. The Reboot course has a 78 percent graduation rate with more than 2,700 program graduates. Almost half (47 percent) of the program’s graduates go on become leaders who serve and guide others who face similar struggles.
The Reboot program helps not only veterans, but their families as well. It emphasizes educating spouses and children about PTSD and how they can best support their loved one throughout their journey.
Reboot understands that the memory of trauma takes time to fade. They do not promise a cure for PTSD, but they are certain that veterans can learn to manage their symptoms, take back control of their mind and spirit, and live a life full of joy and purpose.
