YOU ARE NOT ALONE - HELP IS HERE
Tragedy and trauma are an everyday reality for fire fighters and paramedics, and can lead to behavioral health issues, including addiction, substance abuse and post-traumatic stress disorder, a potentially disabling condition that can impact one in five firefighters and paramedics at some point in their career. A host of additional behavioral health issues can also emerge, including anxiety, depression and even suicide.
The Center of Excellence gives IAFF Members the specialized treatment they need in taking the first steps toward recovery and return to the job.
