On this date, 18 years ago, thousands of emergency workers in New York City and Washington D.C. responded to the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.There were more than 2,700 casualties that day in New York, 412 of which were emergency workers.
For many — first responders, families of first responders, NYC residents and more — this day has been a source of trauma that needs healing. As many as two-thirds of people with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) will turn to drugs and alcohol in order to suppress the recurring systems of trauma. If today is tough for you, you are not alone.

Compassionate Care for First Responders
Police, firefighters and EMTs are more likely to deal with substance abuse and mental health issues than the general population but are less likely to ask for help. Getting help from professionals who understand where you’ve been and what you’ve seen can help you begin your path to healing. At Amatus Recovery Centers across the country, clinical professionals can help you establish an individualized treatment plan to address both substance use disorder (SUD) and PTSD. From 24/7 medical detox to long-term group or individual therapy, Amatus Recovery Centers offer a full continuum of care.
