First Responder Addiction Treatment Program

Understanding the cultural differences, Harbor of Grace has created the National Law Enforcement and First Responder Wellness Center to serve the great men and women in blue and red that suffer with addiction related disorders.

Our Treatment Team of both active and retired First Responders know what it’s like to work in the stressful environment of Public Safety and understand the stress that every firefighter, EMS Provider and law enforcement officer encounters on a daily basis.

Harbor of Grace serves many police agencies and career fire departments across the eastern seaboard.

Our seasoned interventionist, who is also a firefighter, will coordinate and perform a loving intervention designed to gently coach the officer or firefighter into treatment.

Throughout one’s stay, a trained addiction specialist, who is/was a First Responder, will be your primary counselor, and will work together with you on treatment goals and a solid continuing care plan. One-to-one sessions with other First Responder staff will help you address Trauma and PTSD related issues with the proper psychotherapy that includes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), group, individual, family therapy and other time-tested modalities of treatment.

After Residential treatment, our First Responder patients are encouraged to attend three conveniently located regional Peer Support Groups that promote fellowship and recovery. Daily contact with assigned Peers, encourage the newly recovered First Responder to remain connected and active with twelve-step peer meetings, with a goal of preparing them to return to “mission ready”.
