First Responder Wellness Program

Over 1.2 million first responders put themselves on the line every day to protect the communities and people they serve. As noble as the profession is, this line of work exposes first responders to constant trauma and tragic experiences that can lead to PTSD, depression, anxiety, and substance use.

At Cycles of Change Recovery Services, our mission is to treat first responders struggling with those issues that impact their personal and professional lives through our First Responder Wellness program. We’re here to help firefighters, police officers, military personnel, corrections officers, EMTs, dispatchers, nurses, public safety professionals, retirees, and their family members.
