It’s Our Turn to Respond

EMTs, paramedics, firefighters, police officers, and other first responders never know what their workday will bring. Dealing with dangerous, life-threatening situations and high levels of trauma daily puts them under tremendous stress, which can significantly impact their mental health.
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration estimates that nearly 30 percent of first responders develop a mental health condition. At Command Post Wellness, we know the risks associated with first response careers, and so we want to help those who dedicate their lives to saving others.

What Our IOP Includes

At Command Post Wellness, we specialize in first responder wellness. Our team of skilled professionals has extensive experience and training in providing first responders with the mental health care they need and deserve.
Our IOP treatment teaches first responders about their conditions and how to recognize the symptoms of their disease. In addition, we utilize several proven effective therapies that help first responders better understand themselves while learning new coping skills.

Trauma Therapy
Family Therapy
Psychotherapy, or talk therapy, is an effective treatment for a variety of mental illnesses and emotional difficulties. The sessions involve discussing a problem with a mental health professional and focus on relaxation exercises, coping skills, and stress management techniques. Psychotherapy is a way to help first responders eliminate or control troubling symptoms so they can function better, improve well-being, and heal.

There are several types of psychotherapy, and some work better for some conditions. Psychotherapy may be short-term, lasting only a few sessions, or long-term to deal with longstanding and complex issues. Treatment goals and frequency of treatment are flexible and agreed upon by the patient and therapist.

Research shows that psychotherapy is an effective treatment for a variety of mental issues, including:

Difficulties coping with daily life
The impact of trauma
Medical illness
Significant loss, such as the death of a loved one
Psychotherapy,Data shows that nearly 75 percent of people who enter psychotherapy report some benefit, and most people receive relief from their symptoms and are better able to function. Psychotherapy can improve emotions and behaviors and is linked with positive changes in the brain and body that promote healing.

Psychotherapy is often used in combination with medication or other therapies to treat mental health conditions. For many people, a combination of medication and psychotherapy treatment is more effective than either alone.

Traumatic experiences leave a deep and permanent imprint on the mind. The effects may appear immediately or take years, but symptoms may include unpredictable emotions, flashbacks, strained personal relationships, and physical symptoms such as headaches or nausea. While these symptoms are a normal response, some people have difficulty moving on with their lives, and trauma therapy can help them find ways of managing their emotions and heal.

Trauma changes your brain and nervous system, causing dysregulation and symptoms including depression and anxiety. Trauma therapies help people integrate and understand traumatic events, enabling their minds and body to heal. The memory of the traumatic event remains, but it begins to lose power over the person and their emotions. Since trauma is a common element of mental health issues for first responders, along with other therapeutic techniques, we provide trauma-informed care.
Family therapy is a type of psychotherapy that can help family members resolve conflicts and improve communication. Family therapy can help the family address specific issues affecting the family's health and functioning. It can be a valuable treatment to help a family through a challenging period, such as a major transition, or coping with a family member's mental or behavioral health problems.
