Fire fighters & Addiction

The everyday realities of life as a firefighter can create considerable stress. Being a hero that deals with tragedy every day can have a lasting impact on anyone, no matter how strong they are. Relationships outside of work can suffer, compounding your stress. This demanding work environment, coupled with lack of sleep, and life stressors, can be extremely isolating. For this reason, some firefighters turn to drugs or alcohol to cope. Relying on substances can have dire consequences, ultimately leading to addiction and exacerbating stress and isolation. We understand this cycle, and we want to help you break free. Learning how to mentally manage these recurring events is key to a successful, sober and healthy life. It’s time to step away from saving others in order to save yourself. If you or a loved one is a fire fighter struggling with addiction, you are not alone. We understand and can help. Call us 24/7 at (855) 202-2138.

with Writing Therapy

Few professions subject you to as much trauma and stress as fire fighting. Left unresolved, this stress can have a disastrous impact – leading to isolation, loneliness, and addiction. Addressing your difficult experiences is an essential step in finding peace. At Tree House Recovery, we use Writing Therapy to allow fire fighters to identify, process, and resolve the traumas that are often left buried inside. We understand that traumatic experiences can be difficult to talk about, even for fire fighters. Writing Therapy consists of carefully chosen structured topics that are processed with a counselor that understands addiction and trauma. As you begin to work through the past, you will also learn tools for the future. Writing Therapy teaches healthy coping strategies that allow you to manage your thoughts and emotions. These tools are essential for overcoming trauma and PTSD. Writing Therapy prepares you for any trauma, big or small, that may occur in the future, and will allow you overcome these experiences with ease, honesty, and confidence.



with ABI Therapy

Because addiction is isolating, strong connections are essential to lasting recovery. Designed by US Navy SEAL, Neil Trusso, and based on SEAL training methods, Action Based Induction Therapy reconnects you with a healthy team. ABIT sharpens the communication, leadership, and interpersonal skills that you already possess as a firefighter. This modality is designed to engage your prefrontal cortex, the part of your brain responsible for interpersonal functions and decision making. During active addiction, the prefrontal cortex is less active and can become impaired. A strengthened prefrontal cortex is essential for a sustainable, substance-free life. Not only will these improved leadership and interpersonal attunement skills help keep you addiction free, but they will also be advantages in your personal and professional life. ABIT connects you to a team and builds your confidence
