Honor Strong Program

Honor Strong Program

Our First Responders Unit was created due to the increasing need to acutely treat and educate firefighters, police officers, EMS, veterans, and active duty members. These populations require a special level of treatment due to the nature of their professional experiences which routinely exposes them to unique and often tragic circumstances. Keeping these tragic circumstances in mind, the Honor Strong Program focuses on providing “resiliency focused trauma informed care.”

Treatment focuses on helping First Responders recognize and tap in to the resiliency skills they have used to “push through” all the various challenges they routinely face.
