First Responders Drug Rehab

First Responders

Specialized Treatment for First Responders

When we experience an emergency, there are a number of first responders that can come to help us. This includes Police, Fire Fighters, 911 dispatchers, and EMTs. These careers are not for everyone and come with inherent risks and dangers. 

Because of the nature of their work, First Responders are at a higher risk of developing mental health concerns. Repeated exposure to trauma, death, injury, and danger can have a significant impact on a person’s overall wellness. Common mental health concerns among First Responders include depression, anxiety, trauma-related disorders, and substance use disorders. 

Marina Harbor Detox is a First Responder drug and alcohol rehab in San Francisco. CA. Our rehab specializes in detoxification and works within a 6-person maximum capacity. This allows our staff to provide personalized treatment for each individual that is in our care.

First Responders Addiction Statistics

Complex Trauma occurs when an individual, such as a First Responder, is repeatedly exposed to situations that are life-threatening, dangerous, or life-threatening to others. This is a mental health risk for First Responders because they may be exposed to more than one event in a short period of time, sometimes within the same shift, and not have time to process or cope with them as they should. 


Research has shown that career Fire Fighters have higher rates of alcohol misuse and abuse as well as PTSD when compared to volunteer Fire Fighters. Volunteer Fire Fighters did have higher rates of depression, suicidal ideation, and suicide attempts when compared to career Fire Fighters. 


Police Officers who worked in the areas affected by Hurricane Katrina showed a connection between hazardous drinking behaviors and involvement in disaster relief efforts


These statistics speak to the importance of advocating for mental health support among First Responders so that we can work to reduce the prevalence of substance use and misuse.

Why Do First Responders Abuse Drugs?

Reasons associated with substance use among First Responders are not too different from the reasons found among the general population. This includes coping with emotional distress, celebrating, reducing anxiety, relaxing, and avoiding hangovers and withdrawal. 

A key difference between First Responders and the general population is their work environment. First Responders go into their shift not knowing what the day will bring, and have to be ready to respond to calls. In some shifts, First Responders can experience a number of calls that can be distressing. Trauma-related concerns and burnout are significant risks for these professionals without proper use of healthy coping and self-care skills. 

If someone does not have the skills needed to cope with their distress healthily, they may find that drinking or other substances provide temporary relief from their emotional distress. While substances can help you feel numb, they do not get to the root of your distress and can worsen your overall distress level. 

If you have been struggling to control, limit, or stop using drugs and alcohol, you may benefit from a San Francisco First Responders rehab center.

What Does a First Responders Rehab Program Entail?

Specialized addiction treatment programs have been found to enhance addiction treatment programs. When we look at First Responders, it is understandable that there may be components of their work environment and work-related experiences that impacted the development of their addiction. A common component of addiction treatment is group therapy, which allows group members to provide each other with support and validation for their experiences. 


First Responder rehab programs can include group therapy and individual therapy sessions that are added to a traditional addiction treatment program. Depending on your treatment needs, you may be eligible for dual-diagnosis treatment and medication-assisted treatment programs.
