Addiction & Mental Health Resources for First Responders
Emergency responders are the first professionals on the scene after an accident, a medical emergency or even a mass-casualty incident. The unique pressure of a first responder job can often take quite an emotional toll, and it is not uncommon for law enforcement personnel, firefighters, EMTs, and paramedics to develop problems with drugs or alcohol as a coping mechanism. While admitting that they need help can be difficult for those who work in emergency services, obtaining treatment for addiction by enrolling in a rehab or recovery program might make a life-saving difference.
