When an individual is in a first responder occupation—from a paramedic or firefighter to public safety officer or emergency personnel—they commit to a job that is truly selfless. But for some, the stressors of the work can become overwhelming, leaving individuals to turn to unhealthy ways of coping, like alcohol or drug use. At New Hope, we understand that our first responders need specialized care. That’s why we developed the First Responders Program to help these heroes recover from alcohol and substance use. Here’s what patients can expect:
- Our setting – We’ve taken treatment out of the hospital and moved it to a warm, residential setting on 49 expansive acres. Amenities range from a gym, game room and theater, with plenty to do outdoors.
- Our approach – Each individual gets personalized treatment during their stay. Meetings with our trained staff are done on a one-on-one basis as well as in small group settings.
- Our services – Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), music therapy and family therapy are just a sampling of the services provided at the ranch.
