At Recovery First, we individualize every patient’s treatment because everyone’s needs are unique.

Veterans and First Responders

Many veterans and first responders face challenging situations that can haunt them for years to come, eventually causing them to turn to substance abuse. We’re especially proud of our program that serves military veterans and first responders. Available exclusively at our Hollywood facility, this program is available to anyone who served in the military or on the home front as EMTs, firefighters, police officers, and more. We have 10 beds dedicated just for people from this background.

Our program helps you deal with any trauma you might have experienced as a result of your profession. We’ll assist you in working through these issues so you can get back to living a healthy, substance-free life. Learn more about our Veteran & First Responders program. 

Healthcare Professionals Treatment Program

Being a medical professional is a stressful job, so it’s not surprising that people from this background are often afflicted by an addiction to drugs or alcohol. In those working in a healthcare role can receive treatment for substance use and co-occurring disorders. We offer genetics-based testing (upon request), both IPN and PRN designated programs, and re-entry planning for the transition back into the healthcare profession. Learn more about our impaired professionals program.

Gender-Specific Groups

It can sometimes be hard to share intimate details of your life with the opposite sex. This is especially true for men and women who have suffered domestic or sexual abuse at the hands of a partner. To accommodate this, we offer several different gender-specific sessions throughout the week to provide men and women with a safe space to share their feelings and issues.

Spiritual/Mindfulness Tracks

For patients with a spiritual mindset, we are pleased to offer spiritual programming throughout the rehab process. You’ll be able to attend faith-based groups that use the teachings of spirituality to help guide you through this difficult time. This option is especially effective for clergy or others involved in a religious career.

We can also recommend the mindfulness track for clients who aren’t especially religious but still want to focus on their mental and emotional well-being. You can attend yoga classes, cognitive behavioral therapy sessions, and alternative pain management sessions to learn how to live an overall healthy lifestyle.
