Phase 1: Cardiovascular exercise is proven to increase blood flow to the brain. The U.S. military has included intense exercise in basic training to help shape the physical integrity and mental character of young people. ReBoot includes this same military-style approach to high-intensity training in our program to begin healing the brain and body. Cardio is also proven to elevate mood, improve self-esteem and remove residual drug traces in the system. Additionally, the resulting mental and physical exhaustion helps people become more receptive to the coaching. After an intense 14 day physically intense course in Phase I with key family members, ReBoot does not simply put participants back into the same situation they came from. This almost always leads to them experiencing the same triggers and returning to the same behavior within a matter of weeks. Instead, ReBoot’s substance abuse program follows up with three more vital phases that allow participants to more fully work through their issues and hit the ground running when they return to the real world.
Phase 2: Is a live in wellness center that provides the most comprehensive nutritional, mental, physical, and emotional modalities that have been proven to be effective. In this stage of the program your loved one has proven brain healing neurocognitive balancing sessions developed by some of the best Neuroscientists and Neuropsychologists in the world, continues their education with professional tutors, has deeply connective and healing experiences with key family members, learns healthy physical and nutritional practices from experienced coaches and connects on a much deeper level with self, family, others and especially with their higher power. Your family also heals as you play an integral part with the family coaching that builds on the experience you had at the end of Phase I. The approach of the whole individual and family therapy is of utmost importance throughout our process to maximize their chances of success and develop the social networking and life skills key to future success.
Phase 3: gets them outside their own wants and needs through a service trip to a deprived area and creates a deep and lasting memory with key family members. Third world service programs have shown a significant and lasting impression on most youth through seeing the face of true suffering firsthand and assisting those in much greater need than themselves. Experiencing this with family deepens the bond of the newly guided and structured relationship the family has together. A true understanding of how happiness comes from within is the greatest prize from this phase of the program.
Phase 4: is when a youth either returns home with the support of ongoing family and personal therapy monitored and recommended by a local professional, or they enter a unique placement program in a special Transitional Family Environment with a family or group custom selected for their individual needs.
