First responders and union members face special challenges and unique pressures stemming from their work culture. Our credentialed and certified staff is well-trained and successful in identifying and resolving the following challenges to help first responders recover.

Legacy Healing Center treatment for first responders; where we bring hope and healing to our brothers and sisters on the front lines.
On a daily basis, police officers, search and rescue personnel, paramedics, firefighters, and EMTs voluntarily place themselves in traumatic situations during their service to others. These first responders witness situations that an average person may never be exposed to.
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration estimates that as many as 30 percent of first responders struggle with their mental health as a direct result of the stress that their jobs entail. This figure is as much as 50 percent higher than the general population.
Untreated mental health problems are one of the leading causes of substance use disorder. First responders are often affected by depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. At Legacy Healing Center, we understand the unique situation that first responders face in the line of duty and how untreated mental health problems can result in substance abuse as a means of self-medication.
