Co-Occurring Mental Health Treatment

At the IAFF Center for Excellence, we treat the whole person from the inside out. Our staff is qualified to treat co-occurring disorders, such as PTSD, depression and anxiety, to ensure success during recovery.

Recovery, Your Way

Your experiences and challenges are unique to you. Our goal is to get you back to living the life you deserve. We’ll work with you to develop individualized treatment and recovery plans to get you there.
