Fire Fighters

Every time a firefighter takes a call, they know they are putting their lives on the line. This level of stress often leads to a dangerous road to drugs and alcohol, in order to manage anxiety.

Police Officers

It is estimated that 25% of all law enforcement officers suffer from alcoholism or addiction. More often than not, this presents in officers that have been on the job for over 10 years, but can still present in young/new officers as well


Although lower than the general public, statistics of substance abuse in military personnel continue to skyrocket. Often sparked from trauma and PTSD, drug abuse becomes a normal coping mechanism


Many healthcare professionals learn to “desensitize” themselves on the job to deal with the trauma they see on a day to day basis. Naturally, more often than not, this progress’ into full blown active addiction or alcoholism.
