Wellness Programs

First to respond, last to seek help. First responders are always in the middle of tense situations, putting the necessities of others before their own, all while putting up a robust and fearless front. Keeping a calm expression, however, is exhausting. Appearing unfazed doesn’t mean that the stresses of the situation have in any way dissipated. These overall wellness programs cater directly to the pressures that first responders experience while on the front lines of calamity. As such, they provide support for both mental health wellbeing as well as substance abuse that can coincide with them as a coping mechanism. Each program is personalized for the needs of each individual, providing support from intake and detox onward. Inpatient or residential treatment includes comprehensive detox options to offer a supportive environment. Moving forward, first responders have access to intensive outpatient and online services. Even after returning home and going back to work, there is support each step of the way. Family programs are also available. These programs allow loved ones to be involved and informed about the trials that each family member may face. They will learn how to overcome mental health and addiction issues as a unified, supportive unit on the home front. It is usually other people asking for help from first responders, requesting their bravery and skills, but everyone is human. These programs are designed to provide the skills needed in recovery for each first responder to combat their own personal demons. Additionally, they offer a safe environment while clients are finally able to let down that strong front.
