In addition, 22% of people with PTSD also have substance abuse. (Source: National Institute of Health). "We want to help break down the stigmas and barriers for treatment for those who have suffered from trauma or who struggle with addiction, etc. We want to help reach these men and women and help them onto the path of recovery before they take a more destructive route. At this point, some statistics are showing that firefighters and police officers, may be more likely to die by suicide than in the line of duty. We want to help these men and women work through their challenges and have seen many people make positive changes as they go through our program. It's encouraging to think that even more first responders will now have access to our specialized treatment." The staff at Deer Hollow incorporate a wide array of treatment modalities for individuals needing services depending on the nature or severity of their needs, including residential and outpatient options, family therapy, individual therapy, and recreational therapy.
The therapists and counselors working at the Deer Hollow facilities understand some of the specific challenges that first responders face including the greatly increased risk of substance abuse and mental health issues associated with these professions and are skilled at working specifically with this population. Deer Hollow offers an array of treatment options including an intensive group focused on recovery from trauma which includes DBT (dialectical behavioral therapy) and CPT (cognitive processing therapy), which is a trauma-focused aspect of CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy). Lamplugh continues: "Since the beginning of Deer Hollow, we have strived to make a difference as we offer treatment for the first responder community. The bottom line is that being in-network with First Health, one of the largest PPO networks means that there is one less barrier for anyone seeking the residential or outpatient service that we offer."
