The treatment modality at First Responders First can best be describe as “milieu therapy”. In other words, an environment is cultivated that integrates physical, mental and emotional aspects of recovery through carefully designed physical layout, safe and effective therapeutic processes, and care and respect given to all involved in the treatment process. Physical, mental and emotional health are supported by healthy daily living practices, supervised medical care, proper nutrition, and individualized treatment planning to meet the diverse needs of the residents. In milieu therapy, it is to be noted that the relationships among the residents and staff have the dynamic of cohesiveness and safety, and healing occurs not only through clinical interventions, but through caring and supportive relationships among all persons in the environment. At FRF there is even an allowance of service animals to be a part of the treatment.
