If you're among the brave souls who take on the daily challenges of being a first responder, you understand that your profession can wear on your mental and physical well-being. You bear witness to some of the most heartbreaking aspects of humanity, and you often put your safety at risk to help others. It's no wonder first responders have some of the highest rates of PTSD, alcohol use disorder, substance misuse, and other mental health disorders.
We understand that your career can come with a sacrifice of privacy and a lack of quality rest. You may even find yourself amid acute or vicarious traumatic stress brought on by the intense emotions of those you're committed to helping. We appreciate you.
Here at Wish Recovery, we understand that not taking care of yourself or getting the emotional support you need can have disastrous consequences for your career and life. Many people have turned to alcohol and other substances to cope with trauma, occupational stress, emotions, and other circumstances.
This behavior may help in the short term, and the alleviation from distress may be most desirable. Still, the truth is that substance misuse and self-medicating with drugs and alcohol can lead to addiction and other mental health issues, further exacerbating an already low quality of life.
That's why Wish Recovery's First Responder Program was created to provide you with that much-needed help, care and attention.
The First Responders Program at Wish Recovery is designed to give first responders the tools they need to care for themselves and their mental health. Comfortably embedded within a luxurious environment that’s accentuated with resort-style amenities, our program offers evidence-based therapies such as cognitive behavioral therapy, trauma-informed care, motivational interviewing, relapse prevention, and carefully select holistic therapies such as yoga, meditation, spa treatments, aromatherapy, and art and sound therapy based on each client's individual needs. Our priority is to provide a safe and supportive environment for you to heal and reach your goals.
We’ve designed this exclusive program to help you recognize and manage the triggers and underlying causes of mental illness and addiction. At Wish Recovery, we understand the unique cultural and social barriers first responders may face in seeking help, and we aim to make it easier.
First responders may often have concerns about seeking help because of potential negative consequences. Because of the social stigma associated with seeking help for mental health or addiction problems, many first responders avoid doing so. They may be worried that word would get out to the people they serve in the community, compromising their authority.
At Wish Recovery, you can escape your worries and recover and rejuvenate with the comfort of knowing we provide confidential and non-judgmental care in a safe province to ensure you feel comfortable from admission to detox and rehabilitation. We also have many resources available to help you after you graduate.
At Wish Recovery, first responders are heroes, and our programs are designed to help you remain healthy, so you can continue serving your community.
Make self-care and recovery a priority this year, and take advantage of Wish Recovery's First Responders Program. Only by caring for yourself will you be able to keep doing your important work. Contact Wish Recovery to learn more and for a free consultation.
