Our Frontline Warriors, including Corrections Officers, Frontline Personnel, Emergency Room Doctors & Nurses, and more, have a mission to protect and serve. This pressure to remain calm and diplomatic in moments of extreme stress can be too difficult for the average person to bear, and often leads to alcohol or substance abuse as they seek to cope with the effects.

While our frontline workers can come home to their friends and family, many begin to feel the effects of their daily work and their loved ones soon start to realize the damage. In these instances, family members have to be vigilant of the dangerous effects of PTSD and addiction.

In order to provide the best treatment possible, we only accept those who suffer from addiction by itself or in conjunction with psychological disorders such as PTSD.

How Are Frontline Warriors At Risk Of PTSD and Addiction?

PTSD among our warriors can be triggered in a variety of ways. For most personnel, this can include key events such as a death, stress in emergency spaces, or another traumatizing event while on duty. For others, it’s a combination of repeated events and the stress of tough calls. The added pressure of police scandals and a negative spin from the media leads to pressure that can ultimately break even the toughest of us.

Signs and Symptoms Of Addiction and PTSD with Frontline Warriors

There are a variety of signs to watch for that your loved one in police enforcement could be going through PTSD or addiction. Some of these symptoms are normal to experience after a stressful situation, but they become of concern when they are sustained.

Excessive drug or alcohol use

Alcohol and drug abuse are common for those who experience PTSD, and signs that could develop into addiction. Drug abuse can often reach the point of dependency where any attempt to withdraw can cause harm. Those who abuse alcohol tend to regularly experience blackouts and hangovers, and often use it to cope with their traumatic memories.

Inability to feel happiness

Losing pleasure in activities that once brought happiness is common for those who experience PTSD or addiction. This can often be as severe as isolating themselves from others or as simple as having difficulty feeling joy as they spend time with friends and family.

Feelings of unrest

After returning home, frontline warriors, who recently witnessed a traumatic event, might be unable to sleep well as a result of the vivid memories. When this becomes a daily occurrence it could lead to many self-medicating with alcohol or drugs in order to get some rest, ultimately leading to addiction that causes more harm.

Threats to cause self-harm or suicide

Suicide or threatening to cause self-harm is something that should not be taken lightly. If a loved one has taken action or threatened to harm themselves, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 for immediate assistance.

Shift in mood

Your loved one might start to experience feelings of aggression or irritability as they talk to others. This could also include mentions of feeling trapped or having no hope in the future, which is often a result of a shift in mood.

Violent behavior

Experiencing call after call of traumatizing events could lead many to start taking risk-taking behavior which could indicate a disregard for their safety. Harming others could also become a problem and could lead to domestic violence alongside intimidation, assault, or other abusive behavior.
