When facilitating behavioral healthcare services for first responders and public safety officers, Acadia Healthcare’s Treatment Placement Specialists® (TPS) take a holistic approach by addressing the Four Domains of Resilience. This ensures that we meet the physical, mental, spiritual, and social needs of every public servant we support.
Maintaining your physical health is important for your overall well-being, and for a first responder or member of law enforcement, it is also a foundational part of meeting the daily demands of your job. But there is also a powerful connection between the mind and body that can influence your mental health.
Certain physical symptoms can indicate that you are struggling with a mental health condition, while a chronic illness or major injury can lead to the development of a substance use disorder or mental health concern.
Acadia Healthcare’s Treatment Placement Specialists and our public safety liaisons ensure that every first responder and law enforcement officer receive care that addresses this vital mind/body connection.
Connecting public safety officers with the behavioral health services that are most appropriate for them is at the core of our first responders program.
For some first responders or law enforcement officers, exposure to one or more traumatic events can cause a brain injury known as posttraumatic stress (PTS), which affects the way the brain and body process and react to certain experiences. Others may struggle with psychological trauma, depression, anxiety disorders, or substance use disorders.
We find mental health and addiction treatment that can address the specific needs of people who have careers in public service, helping them set the groundwork for lasting recovery.
At Acadia Healthcare, we recognize that a person’s spiritual health is highly personal, so our TPS team and public safety liaisons take the time to understand how to best support the spiritual needs of every first responder and law enforcement officer we work with.
For some people, this involves incorporating a religious component into their mental health or addiction treatment. Others may be seeking ways to discover a greater sense of purpose without taking part in a specific religion.
We work closely with you to develop and nurture your spiritual health in a way that is most beneficial to you.
Living with an addiction or mental health condition can be an isolating experience, often damaging the relationships with those we love most.
Acadia Healthcare’s TPS team and public safety liaisons connect first responders and law enforcement officers with mental health or addiction treatment that allows them to process the traumatic experiences that have made it difficult to have healthy relationships.
Throughout their time in treatment, public servants may also have opportunities to repair relationships that have suffered because of their struggles with addiction or a mental health concern and work to develop the coping skills they need to maintain those relationships.
