Are you are an IAFF member seeking alcohol treatment for yourself, or the loved one of an IAFF member struggling with alcoholism? Do you want to learn more about your options? You can find answers here.
The IAFF Center of Excellence takes an integrated treatment approach to alcohol addiction. This means we combine pharmaceutical, cognitive behavioral, traditional 12-step, group and individual therapy to heal the mind, body and spirit while helping IAFF members build bonds with others on the same journey. We offer several levels of care for alcohol addiction.
Clinically Managed Detox
Those who are addicted to alcohol experience intense withdrawal symptoms once they stop drinking. During clinically managed detox, IAFF members undergo the detox process as safely as possible while receiving 24-hour care from our dedicated nursing team.
Inpatient or residential treatment is the most intensive level of care, with around-the-clock monitoring to provide support and structure. After the detox phase, IAFF members live at the facility 24/7 while receiving individual therapy, group counseling, medication management, holistic therapies and other services.
After completing a residential program, members may be transferred to a partial hospitalization level of care. In this phase, members live in transitional housing at the Center or at home while continuing all-day treatment six days a week.
