American Addiction Centers…
Over time, the emotional costs of military service can be high – anxiety, PTSD, flashbacks, hypervigilance, major depression, or survivor’s guilt. The very nature of our military and first responder heroes – to “power through,” to “protect and serve” to “carry the load” – can put them at risk for self-medicating and addiction. American Addiction Centers’ First Responder Lifeline program takes on both addiction and the emotional costs of combat and responder service. The First Responder Lifeline program can be found at five American Addiction Centers’ facilities across the nation: Greenhouse Treatment Center, Dallas, TX, Sunrise House Treatment Center, Sussex County, NJ, Desert Hope Treatment Center, Las Vegas, NV, Recovery First West Palm, Fort Lauderdale, FL, Clinical Services Rhode Island – Greenville/Portsmouth/South Kingstown, RI
