First Responders Treatment Program
37% of First Responders suffer from behavioral health problems, including addiction and Post-traumatic stress disorder. The rate of attempted suicide among First Responders is steadily increasing to more than 10 times the national average. Millions of lives are saved annually by this special population; which includes, but is not limited to Police Officers, Firefighters, Correctional Officers, EMTs, and 911 Dispatchers. It is in their very nature to put other’s needs before their own. Often times, the individuals who protect and serve on a daily basis find it difficult to ask for help for themselves.
We acknowledge and embrace that First Responders have their own culture, code, and values within our society. That is why we have designed Shatterproof to be a place where First Responders can feel comfortably at ease. We offer comprehensive addiction programs to best fit their unique needs and help them lead clean and sober lifestyles.
Shatterproof – Our First Responders Program
Shatterproof employs evidence-based therapies, innovative medical care, and a comprehensive wellness program, which focuses on symptoms of PTSD, in order to guide our First Responders on the right path to achieving life-long recovery from drugs and alcohol. Shatterproof is designed to help First Responders overcome specific obstacles and increase their ability to manage emotions during stressful situations without turning to self-medication. Our medical team works to customize a care plan tailored to the underlying issues that contribute to substance use disorders. Our evidence-based, holistic treatment approach addresses every individual’s physical, neurological, mental, social, emotional and spiritual well-being. We also utilize a peer-support group model to help improve our patients’ outcomes by placing patients together who have similar backgrounds. This will allow patients to feel more comfortable, resulting in better outcomes. These treatment approaches are utilized throughout our continuum of care.
