Levels of Care
The IAFF Center of Excellence provides a comprehensive range of services for substance use disorder treatment and PTSD treatment. We aid our clients through the entire recovery process.
Detox is the initial phase of treatment
for substance use disorders. We provide 24/7 supervision and medications when appropriate to ease withdrawal symptoms.
During residential treatment, clients participate in individual and family therapy sessions according to their personalized treatment plans. Group therapy sessions and support group meeting access may also be offered. The frequency of therapy may be increased if necessary.
Partial Hospitalization Program
Partial hospitalization is a less intensive form of inpatient therapy. The frequency of individual therapy typically decreases, with clients gaining access to recreational therapy and other on- and off-campus activities. Case management services and discharge planning may be introduced at this phase.
Intensive Outpatient Program
As clients continue to progress through the treatment program, they may participate in family and individual therapy sessions less frequently. Nursing services are available in case of emergency, but clients are typically not monitored around-the-clock.
After leaving the facility, clients may continue their outpatient programming
as needed. Services can include individual therapy, group therapy, family counseling and substance abuse education classes. Clients continue to have access to case management services if necessary.
Each fire fighter’s individualized aftercare plan will detail the type, frequency and duration of recommended treatment. The plan includes goals, support group access and recommendations for other relevant services.
