Why First Responder Rehab?
Even before pandemic life, first responders have undergone daily stress and trauma. Traumatic events are often written off as part of daily life for firefighters, EMTs, doctors, nurses, police officers, and other frontline workers. When the body undergoes traumatic stress like life-threatening events, it releases chemicals that cause a fight, flight, flee response. While these responses are vital in life or death situations, if the chemicals aren’t processed after the event, they are stored in the body. When this happens, a person can suffer from PTSD.
Unfortunately, PTSD is underdiagnosed and under-treated. This leads many people on the front lines to self-soothe and self-medicate with drugs or alcohol. While this may provide temporary relief, it can make problems worse in the long run. For first responders, drugs and alcohol can cause detrimental effects on the job, make them less able to respond to emergencies, and cause their overall health to decline.

What to Expect from First Responder Rehab at Northpoint Colorado
We know addressing trauma and co-occurring disorders alongside addiction is key in first responder recovery. Our three-step programs help patients detox, understand addiction triggers, and change behavior over time.
Initial detox usually lasts for a week. This may include medically assisted detox and 24/7 care. After this initial week, patients begin therapy to understand their addictive behaviors. This stage usually involves three weeks of cognitive-behavioral therapy. CBT is the leading evidence-based therapy for addiction recovery because it really works. Clients learn to address their triggers, manage emotions, and heal PTSD.
The third stage of recovery lasts as long as a client needs. This usually involves IOP or PHP programs which provide clients with continued therapy, 12-step programs, and aftercare planning to help them implement what they learn in the real world. This can be an essential step for first responders returning to work after initial rehab.
