Drug Rehab for First Responders
Police, firefighters, and emergency medical services (EMS) often work in dangerous and demanding situations. This constant exposure to life-threatening situations, long hours, and demanding responsibilities can often negatively impact their overall mental health leading to depression, anxiety, and PTSD. These mental illnesses can sometimes go untreated because of the fear of being seen as weak or underperforming and this may lead to substance use as a form of self-medicating.
Due to the overall stress and trauma of these professions, it is not uncommon to develop a co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders.
Parkdale Center is aware of the necessity of balancing your career, your personal life, and your sobriety. We offer specialized treatment programs that cater to the specific needs of your profession. Parkdale is committed to working with various regulatory, legislative, investigative, monitoring, and treatment organizations to ensure the Aftercare program exceeds expectations.
