    Re-Entry Survival Teams!

    in Health

    Re-Entry Survival Teams are hand-picked inclusive teams who successfully reintegrate warriors (veterans) into their families and civilian communities. The teams comprise individuals with diverse training, education, leadership, and problem solving abilities. They are flexible, collaborative, passionate, and interdependent on everyone’s knowledge, skills, and abilities despite how they were acquired.
    Re-Entry Survival Teams are a part of the R.E.S.P.O.N.D. Warrior Reintegration program. Both were created by PTS Treatment to enable warriors to adapt their military experience to build inclusive teams to successfully reintegrate into their families and civilian communities. We realize that some warriors will be returning with PTS, missing limbs, TBI, blindness, MST, injuries, Combat Stress, or invisible wounds. Warriors, their families, and civilian communities may not be prepared for a homecoming and the reintegration process. There are some stigmas and limiting beliefs that warriors and members of the community are holding onto that may prevent the development of strong inclusive teams and neighborhoods. A common language and collaborative approach is essential if our warriors and communities are to survive! There is “NO Try”! We need to get it right; there are “NO Second Chances”!   Warriors (veterans) are struggling with their reintegration into their families and civilian communities. It’s affecting their family life, employment, bank account, and community support. We help warriors and their families to create “Re-Entry Survival Teams” by engaging the warrior’s military experience to contribute to their families and create safe, friendly, and diverse Organic Communities. Once the teams are operating successfully, we help move them from Survival to Prosperity! “Your re-entry into civilian life matters!”

    David Koch Advises Parolees on Successful Re-entry

    in Politics Progressive

    Dave Koch, a man who experienced unprecedented success after parole, joins "Human Rights for Prisoners March" to talk about how to make a successful re-entry or "slay the dragon" in whatever listeners face. Koch did it! Call-in at (347)857-3293. Visit Koch's website, "Self Reinvention" http://www.selfreinvention.org

    Koch served sentences of 18 mo. to 5 yrs. in federal and state prisons, then went on to become a pilot. Later he was co-founder, president, CEO and chairman of the 68th fastest growing company in America - Fiber Network Solutions. Koch's company helped build the infrastructure of the Internet in North America. Koch authored "Slaying the Dragon," a book to inspire us all to overcome obstacles in our lives. Even released prisoners like himself can make it to the ivory tower.

    "Don't tell me that you can't have a great life after serving time in prison! It requires work, and just don't quit!" ~Dave Koch

    "The Urban News" published an article in 2009 about Koch, ex-con who became highly successful, called "Ex-Con Turned CEO Declares: 'Accept Self-Blame and Re-Invent Yourself!'"

    Why Is Loving Ourselves So Hard?

    in Women

    Everyone has heard that you have to love yourself before someone else can love you. The reason for this is simple - our ideal partner is a reflection of us. We attract people that are like us. Not just in terms of romantic, sexual/physical attraction. We attract them metaphysically - these people tend to turn up in our lives.


    Water seeks its' own level.  If you don't love yourself, you're unhappy and therefore, you attract unhappy people. There is truth in the saying, "misery loves company." The reason for this is because the only people that want to be around miserable people are other miserable folks!
