First Responder Treatment Services


First Responder Treatment Services provides a full continuum of inpatient addiction and psychological specialty services within a confidential setting for law enforcement, firefighters, paramedics, emergency medical technicians, and military veterans/personnel. We are an acute care facility with medical and psychiatric services specifically designed to treat PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and chronic and acute trauma associated with critical incidents that First Responders confront in the performance of their work.

Each First Responder’s care includes:

  • Comprehensive evaluation
  • Assessment and treatment of co-existing medical and psychiatric conditions
  • Individualized treatment plan
  • Individual and group therapy
  • Family therapy and psychoeducation
  • Evidence-based practices integrated with traditional 12-step recovery-based programming
  • 24-hour, 7-day-a-week nursing coverage
  • Psychotropic medication management, as needed
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Expressive therapies (art, music, and movement)
  • Fitness gym
