First Responder Dual Diagnosis Treatment –
Trauma and Addiction Rehab
Firefighters, police, EMS personnel and other first responders experience high stress (and high risk) situations daily. The stress involved does not disappear when the responders go home at night.
High stress profession working conditions can contribute to mental health problems and substance abuse. These working conditions include:
• chronic stress
• physical strain
• working long hours
• lack of sleep.
Studies suggest that sleep disturbances with least 2 weeks of insomnia or hypersomnia (or both) reported – are risk factors for the later development of depression, anxiety disorders or substance abuse and addiction.
When first responders receive treatment soon after health impacts from a traumatic event are noticed – months of suffering can be avoided.
Asking for Help in Dealing with Trauma is a Sign of Strength
Asking for help to deal with the impacts of trauma, PTSD and/or substance abuse issues is a sign of strength.
Firefighters, police, EMS and other emergency services providers are seldom called on to rescue cute kittens from trees. On a daily basis, first responders see accident victims horribly injured or burned, rescue survivors crushed in crumbling buildings, fight overwhelming forest fires, pull residents from burning buildings. Or they may be called on to defuse situations ranging from domestic disputes to a hostage crisis.
For first responders, work stress takes an emotional and mental toll.
Their job stress often includes:
• Not being able to save everyone;
• The extent of serious injuries at an accident scene;
• Not being successful in defusing a dispute resulting in injury.
PTSD Risk for Firefighters, Police, EMS, Veterans, and Others
Firefighters, police, EMS, veterans, and other first responders are at high risk of experiencing trauma. And ongoing experience of trauma can lead to developing behavioral health issues. Mental health and wellness issues that can be caused by repeated trauma include anxiety, depression, burnout, PTSD, functional alcoholism and addiction.
Taking care of mental health is as important as managing physical health. Although in many cases – there may still be a stigma attached to seeking help.
However, the sooner emergency personnel receive treatment after a traumatic event health impacts are noticed – the better the outcome.
There is no need to ‘suffer in silence’ for months before seeking (and receiving) help and treatment.
The traumatized individual not only experiences impacts to their own health and wellness. Significant others, friends and family are also affected by PTSD and ‘self-medicating’ substance abuse.
A high quality dual diagnosis addiction and trauma treatment program equips clients with techniques, strategies and the support needed to cope with trauma and stress on a daily basis. And assists in developing healthier ways of handling trauma moving forward.
