First Responders Substance Abuse Treatment

When Those Who Help Need Help Too

Police officers, firefighters, and other first responders face a level of stress and pressure that we cannot imagine or comprehend. From the everyday stress of the job, to experiencing extremely traumatic events and dealing with unhealthy levels of anxiety, it can be difficult for these professionals to find ways to cope with their occupational realities. Sadly, a large number of first responders turn to drugs and alcohol as a means to escape the things they experience on regular basis. The problem with treating anxiety, depression, trauma or other mental conditions with substance abuse is that it merely drowns out symptoms temporarily. When the symptoms inevitably return, first responders are forced to self-medicate themselves again. This process continues until a debilitating addiction forms. Our first responders treatment focuses on developing healthier coping skills while defeating addiction.
