WARRIOR COMBAT STRESS RESET PROGRAM

Phone 254-288-4746

The Warrior Combat Stress Reset Program is designed to help address these common and normal reactions to war experiences. The emphasis is on helping to calm your mind, body and spirit after returning from war. Combat puts Soldiers in an environment where a constant state of vigilance (hyper-arousal) is beneficial to saving one’s life. We are committed to the idea that with education, the development of new and effective coping and self-regulation skills and time-limited intensive counseling we can help provide initial emotional relief for many returning Soldiers and prepare them for full recovery. This program is designed for those Soldiers who are committed to an intensive and structured program of treatment and whose goal is to further their careers with continued service in the U.S. Army. The program is structured as a three-week intensive program focused on reducing hyper-arousal and reactivity. Reducing these core symptoms of combat stress and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder allows other treatments to be more effective. It also provides tools for preventing future trauma. Hours are 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

SCOUTS

Boy Scouts have many packs and troops in the area. The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law. Check them out at www.leonvalleydistrict.org. Girl Scouts offers girls the tools they need to be successful leaders now and throughout their lives. Leadership opportunities through Girl Scouting focus on engaging girls in discovering themselves, connecting with others and taking action to make the world a better place. To learn more and find a troop, visit www.gsctx.org.

BOYS AND GIRLS CLUBS

There are several Boys and Girls Clubs in the area. They offer services for children 7 to 17 years old. The clubs provide a variety of grouped recreation, educational and social programs. A recent affiliation between Clements Boys and Girls Clubs in Killeen and Fort Hood Army base increased club membership by 100 percent when military kids were offered free memberships.

ARMED FORCES YMCA

The Central Texas Armed Services YMCA began because of a vision held by volunteers that programs for youth and adults should be available in the local communities. Because the communities are made up of Soldiers and families, the ASYMCA continues to play a major role of support for the men/women of the Armed Forces and their Families. The first Summer Day Camp site was started in 1989 and the first after-school child care program opened in 1990 in the Killeen Independent School District. In 1991, the ASYMCA expanded its child care to the Copperas Cove Independent School District. Today, the ASYMCA provides the area with 17 before-school and 25 after-school sites serving over 750 children a day. The ASYMCA has 73 child care staff with 30 high-school seniors in co-op partnership. The centers are in Killeen at 415 North 8th St. and in Copperas Cove at 501 Clara Drive.
