Help for First Responders

Being a first responder takes a physical and mental toll on everyone in the field. This is due to the frequent and repetitive exposure to traumatic experiences on the job. These people put their own lives on the line to serve and protect our communities, but they are not immune to needing help. That’s why Chateau Recovery offers a First Responder Resiliency Program, providing public safety professionals with a safe environment to address their specific needs.

Why to Get Help

Due to repeated exposure to trauma, many first responders experience physical and mental fatigue throughout their careers. While physical symptoms are easier to identify, mental and psychological problems often get missed, left undiagnosed, or not treated at all. These problems can manifest as job stress, PTSD, anxiety, depression, family problems, and potential substance abuse. 

First Responder Program

Chateau Recovery offers the First Responder Resiliency Program, created as a safe space for these professionals to address the physical and mental needs that many tend to ignore. This program focuses on peer support, self-care, and stress management to help build resilience while we address responses to trauma. First responders will gain comprehensive skills and resources to be able to fully reintegrate into their personal and professional lives.
