Treatment for Alcoholism

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 Residential

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.

Partial Hospitalization

After completing a residential program, members may be transferred to a partial hospitalization level of care with treatment six days per week.

Online Substance Abuse Counseling and Treatment

For members moving to an outpatient program after an inpatient stay or those who have mild or low-risk symptoms, teletherapy for alcoholism may be a good fit. The IAFF Center of Excellence offers teletherapy options for several treatment programs — outpatient, intensive outpatient, partial hospitalization and medication-assisted treatment.

Although this is the final level of treatment, it’s just as important as the others. It involves developing a plan and coping mechanisms to prevent relapse and may include:

  • Outpatient or intensive outpatient substance abuse treatment
  • Individual counseling or psychotherapy
  • Pharmaceutical management
  • Support groups (AA, NA, etc.)
  • Alumni mentoring program
  • Return-to-work planning and support
  • Check-in calls with Center of Excellence staff (if desired)
