First Responders Program
The Bella Monte Recovery Center™ has developed a program to treat First Respondents dealing with deep trauma, substance use and mental health issues that may arise from the impact of their professions. Research on First Responders so far shows that First Responders are at high risk for depression, anxiety, family dysfunction, negative work-site interactions / bullying, substance use /abuse, PTSD, and toxic stress.
- We treat a variety of first responders referred from around the country.
- Private, tailored program to target underlying issues common for First Responders.
- Trauma assessment, treatment plan, and treatment that allows First Responders to heal from past trauma and return to work with skills to cope with new events.
Many first responders we have treated describe their substance use as a way to cope with the years and years of stress and trauma. They describe an industry that does not talk about trauma and pain and simply moves on from it day to day. Treatment here allows first responders to slow down, take a look at the past, and make healing choices to live a fulfilled life on and off the job.
