Press Release (ePRNews.com) - PHOENIX - Jul 11, 2019 - In high-risk occupations, such as police officers, firefighters, emergency room physicians and active-duty military, it is no surprise statistics show an increased instance of alcohol and drug abuse in this subset of our community. These “heroes” are constantly experiencing the highest levels of stress and trauma in their professions, yet little is done to support them when the aftereffects become too much to bear. In their line of work, they are exposed to overly intense life-and-death situations where a fatal injury to an innocent victim or to themselves is a sobering reality each and every day. This exposure to high-intensity situations takes a tremendous toll over time which can lead to PTSD and a variety of “invisible wounds,” including mental health issues, drug use and alcohol abuse. Addiction Recovery Centers, an established provider of leading-edge substance abuse treatment centers in the country, has recently launched a “Heroes Treatment Program” at their full-service medical detox and substance abuse facility in Tucson, Arizona.
Addiction Recovery Centers offers first responders a compassionate, confidential and inviting residential setting nestled in the desert of Phoenix, Arizona. This beautiful location provides a serene place for meditation, nature walks and other rejuvenating outdoor experiences. ARC’s facilities also include an indoor fitness gym, spa and outdoor pool. In addition, patients can enjoy dining outside or gathering in the community lounge areas to watch television, play board games or just enjoy conversation with others who are on a similar recovery journey. The healing atmosphere provides a space where inner calm is discovered, and profound and lasting recovery can begin.
According to the Journal of Military and Government Counseling, stress increases vulnerability to addiction. Some police officers or military personnel may choose to drink as a way to self-medicate after a particularly stressful day, which may seem harmless at first. Acute and chronic stress leads officers to seek out ongoing coping methods to deal with their debilitating stress, including drugs and even more alcohol.
There are many signs of substance and alcohol addiction, including drastic changes in appearance, neglect of personal hygiene, financial problems, memory loss and withdrawal from family and social activities. Knowing what to look for is the first step, and then knowing where to turn for help comes next.
Addiction Recovery Centers is currently accepting patients from across the region and offers a fully integrated treatment approach for first responders. Treatment at ARC begins with a complete biophysical and medical evaluation by a medical doctor and psychologist/psychiatrist. From there, an individualized treatment plan is developed that is tailored to each first responder’s needs. Services may include, but are not limited to, medical detox, inpatient rehab, intensive outpatient therapy (PHP & IOP) and residential treatment (RTC). Addiction Recovery Centers also provides Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT), including Suboxone, Vivitrol and Naltrexone.
