Treatment Facilities

These treatment centers have all be vetted by our members. However, we recognize there can be other centers that are appropriate. Things we recommend folks look at are:

Ensure the schedule is maximized with evidence based treatments and activities.

  • Determine the amount of therapy provided.
  • Determine the certifications of the counselors.
  • Examine billing procedures.
  • Understand waitlist procedures. (These programs listed move first responders to front of the line)
