At Warriors Heart, we have created a treatment facility and program from the ground up with a specific target. We mean to help Warriors in every walk of life. We offer a variety of treatments for those seeking inpatient treatment for chemical dependency, alcohol abuse, and co-occurring psychological disorders relating to PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) or the psychological effects of MTBI (mild traumatic brain injury). For those who have fought battles to defend our country and our citizens, fighting the battle against addiction and depression doesn’t need to be done alone.
Warriors can be found along many walks of life
Very little matches the pressure of fighting for your life and the lives of others simultaneously. As a firefighter, that’s the duty you’ve accepted. What you don’t have to accept is the destructive effect that stress can have on your life.
PTSD is a real concern among firefighters and can go unrecognized for much longer than it should. If you’re experiencing common symptoms of PTSD and trying to cope, you might be developing habits or dependencies that could be hard to break. Addiction is a coping mechanism that causes more harm than good.
We welcome firefighters at Warriors Heart and have successfully brought peace to brothers and sisters struggling just like you might be. Give us a call – we want to hear how we can best serve you.
Becoming a career police officer incurs a great deal of job stress. Long hours, dangerous shifts, and repetitive paperwork build up over time and might result in frustrations at work bleeding into home life.
As retired law enforcement, our staff can understand the pattern this leads to. Seeking escape or relief results in a cycle of substance abuse, emotional lows, and return to high stress. These addictions range from alcoholism and drug usage to internet and pornography addiction.
We don’t want to push a cookie-cutter 12-step program on you. Our philosophy is one of confidential, communal, and personal recovery. The facility at Warriors Heart offers the peace you’ve been looking for, and we couple that with personal counseling to help create change that lasts.
Perhaps the biggest impetus for the founding of Warriors Heart is the unacceptably high number of daily veteran suicides in our country. Warriors Heart continues to work closely with Mission 22 to bring that number closer to zero.
We’ve found that active military and veterans are particularly susceptible to feelings of loneliness and lack of purpose, which can quickly lead to dependence or addiction on substances like alcohol and prescription drugs. One of the biggest changes Warriors Heart can help make is reintroducing purpose into your life.
What Warriors Heart offers active military and veterans is a private, confidential environment in which to recover. Our counselors and staff, as well as fellow patients, have similar experiences in and out of the field. You don’t need to explain yourself or your behavior. We’ve been there, too.
Paramedics, EMT’s, ER surgeons, and others are often the first line of defense for medical trauma. As a minority of the population, you are regularly asked to go above and beyond in your work. First responders sometimes develop patterns of substance abuse or addiction in their response to job stress. These harsh situations can create vicious cycles that are incredibly difficult to overcome alone.
That’s how Warriors Heart can help.
Highly stressful situations affect people deeply and can create feelings of detachment or loneliness. Treatment at Warriors Heart takes this into consideration – you’ll be able to regain confidence, purpose, and control of your life in the company of people who understand what you’ve experienced.
Warriors can be found along many walks of life. Our goal is to provide the support system that Warriors need in order to come home – return to a balanced, healthy lifestyle free from addictions and harmful patterns of behavior.
