Being a hero is hard. The stress and trauma of the job can make it difficult to cope with everyday life. A SAMHSA report states First Responders are 3 times more likely to suffer from Substance Use Disorders (SUD) than the national average. Depression, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, SUD, and suicidal ideation are some of the behavioral health consequences considered as occupational risks. Heritage CARES can reduce the effects of occupational risks and trauma and gives First Responders someone to call when they need a hero of their own.
A virtual, evidenced-based program uses harm-reduction and behavioral modification to provide private support to First Responders for stress, substance use issues, and/or suicidal ideation.
Through youturn, an online learning management system with the most extensive video library of its kind, Heritage CARES educates, inspires, and helps you gain insight into your stressors, triggers, or substance use behaviors.
