Specialized Addiction Treatment for Military And First Responders.
At Trafalgar Addiction Treatment Centres, we are uniquely qualified to provide the best possible care for those who have served in the military or as first responders. Our highly-qualified clinicians are experts in treating addiction alongside the types of concurrent mental health disorders that often affect clients from these professional backgrounds. These disorders include PTSD, anxiety and depression.
We provide the type of safe, controlled environment that is essential in treating clients with concurrent disorders. Clients can engage with others who have had similar experiences and face similar challenges. This kind of understanding, compassionate environment is an essential aspect of our treatment protocol.
Addiction-related mental health disorders manifest themselves in different ways for every person coping with them. This means that the treatment provided must be adaptable to the specific nature of each client’s condition. Individual therapy allows clients to identify the underlying causes and consequences of their mental health and addiction problems. They can then develop healthy methods for coping with these problems and can ultimately restore order to their lives.
This is a crucial aspect of our treatment: confronting the underlying causes of addiction to achieve a holistic, truly effective treatment for the whole person. Clients are provided with healthy tools for dealing with addiction triggers and concurrent mental health disorders, giving them the strongest possible foundation for lasting recovery.
Alongside individual therapy, our integrative treatment protocol includes skills and process groups specifically designed to treat clients who have served in the military or as first responders. These groups help clients to identify specific challenges and triggers before developing methods for managing them. Clients can measure their progress from week to week and see tangible evidence of their improvement.
These groups also allow clients to engage with and benefit from the perspectives and experiences of others who come from similar backgrounds and are facing similar challenges. This collaborative aspect of treatment often appeals to clients with backgrounds in the military or as first responders. The specific, focused nature of these groups also allows clients to feel comfortable discussing their problems as others present can truly relate and understand. This is crucial for many clients coping with PTSD or anxiety disorders routed in their professional experiences.
We work hard to ensure that our treatment centres maintain an atmosphere that is conducive to recovery. A safe, comfortable setting is extremely important in treating clients who have served in the military or as first responders, as they are often dealing with intense trauma. We also provide our clients with a clear structure and can provide a detailed daily schedule upon request, which is often appreciated by clients dealing with PTSD.
