First Responder Dual Diagnosis Treatment –
Northern California Trauma, PTSD and Addiction Rehabs
New Start Recovery Solutions has First Responder Trauma and PTSD treatment in Northern California.
Firefighters, police, EMS personnel and other first responders experience high stress (and high risk) situations daily. The stress involved does not disappear when the responders go home at night.
High stress profession working conditions can contribute to mental health problems and substance abuse. These working conditions include:
Studies suggest that sleep disturbances with least 2 weeks of insomnia or hypersomnia (or both) reported – are risk factors for the later development of depression, anxiety disorders or substance abuse and addiction.
When first responders receive treatment soon after health impacts from a traumatic event are noticed – months of suffering can be avoided.

Asking for Help with Trauma is a Sign of Strength
Asking for help to deal with the impacts of trauma, PTSD and/or substance abuse issues is a sign of strength.
Firefighters, police, EMS and other emergency services providers are seldom called on to rescue cute kittens from trees.
On a daily basis, first responders see accident victims horribly injured or burned, rescue survivors crushed in crumbling buildings, fight overwhelming forest fires, pull residents from burning buildings.
Or they may be called on to defuse situations ranging from domestic disputes to a hostage crisis.
For first responders, work stress takes an emotional and mental toll. Their job stress often includes:
• Not being able to save everyone;
• The extent of serious injuries at an accident scene;
• Not being successful in defusing a dispute resulting in injury
Taking care of mental health is as important as managing physical health. Although in many cases – there may still be a stigma attached to seeking help.
However, the sooner emergency personnel receive treatment after a traumatic event health impacts are noticed – the better the outcome.
There is no need to ‘suffer in silence’ for months before seeking (and receiving) help and treatment.
PTSD Risk for Firefighters, Police, EMS, Veterans, and Others
Firefighters, police, EMS, veterans, and other first responders are at high risk of experiencing trauma. And ongoing experience of trauma can lead to developing behavioral health issues. Mental health and wellness issues that can be caused by repeated trauma include anxiety, depression, burnout, PTSD, functional alcoholism and addiction.
The traumatized individual not only experiences impacts to their own health and wellness. Significant others, friends and family are also affected by PTSD and ‘self-medicating’ substance abuse.
The New Start Recovery Solutions evidence-based dual diagnosis addiction and trauma treatment program gives patients the techniques, strategies and support needed to cope with trauma and stress on a daily basis.
And treatment assists in developing healthier ways of handling trauma moving forward.

What is PTSD?
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that is triggered by the trauma of experiencing or witnessing a terrifying event. PTSD symptoms can include flashbacks, nightmares and severe anxiety – as well as uncontrollable or intrusive thoughts about the event.
Emotional and psychological trauma occurs when extraordinarily stressful events shatter an individual’s usual sense of security. As a result, there is a feeling of being temporarily helpless in a dangerous world.
Most people who experience traumatic events have temporary difficulty adjusting and coping. If trauma symptoms get worse – or last more than 3 months and interfere with day-to-day functioning – you may have PTSD.
Traumatic Experiences are Unique to Each Individual
Traumatic experiences often involve a threat to life or safety. However any situation that creates a feeling of being overwhelmed and isolated can result in trauma; trauma does not need to involve physical harm. The more frightened and helpless feelings that are generated – the more likely trauma will occur.
We all react to trauma in different ways – there is a wide range of physical and emotional reactions to trauma. There is no “right” or “wrong” way to think, feel, or respond. Do not judge your own reactions or those of other people.
Your responses are NORMAL reactions to ABNORMAL events.
Getting effective treatment after PTSD symptoms develop can be critical to reduce symptoms and improve the quality of life.
