A SUBSTANCE ABUSE TREATMENT CENTER FOR FIRST RESPONDERS
Police officers, firefighters, paramedics and other first responders put themselves on the front lines every day. Facing high-stress (and potentially traumatic) situations every day affects these individuals in ways that they don’t always notice. First Responders Recovery is a substance abuse treatment center in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida designed specifically to first responders and their unique needs, whether it be drug or alcohol addiction, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression or anxiety. We are open to current and former first responders only, fostering a supportive environment for those who dedicate their lives to risking their lives and serving their communities.
COMPASSIONATE SUBSTANCE ABUSE TREATMENT
Our programs are designed specifically to address the mental and physical impact of a career in public safety. Several of our staff members are retired first responders who understand that every day on the job can bring particular stresses for each first responder and their families.
We combine the highest levels of clinical expertise with a genuine understanding of what it means to serve in a high-pressure first responder role. Our substance abuse treatment center is designed to help each first responder heal from the damage caused by substance abuse and/or mental illness and return to a healthy life with tools to help them cope with the immense stress of their jobs.
BUILDING THE FOUNDATION
FOR LASTING RECOVERY
Our trained clinicians use a wide variety of proven and effective treatments to help first responders address the underlying causes of their addiction and/or mental illness. Our methods combat addiction from various levels and work to reduce symptoms, increase a client’s ability to maintain sobriety and heal clients both physically and mentally.
We combine substance abuse treatment with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) treatment, depression treatment and treatment for other mental disorders that commonly occur alongside substance abuse.
