PTSD coping skills include mindfulness techniques, moving a muscle, paying attention to the breathe, and not giving up.


Specialized Trauma Programs

First responders have a high rate of experiencing or witnessing field-specific trauma. Around 5% – 22% of First Responders are diagnosed with unresolved trauma annually. While this differs from PTSD, a long-standing condition, it’s important for first responders experiencing trauma to seek treatment so it doesn’t become a larger issue.


The situations first responders are involved in are very difficult and stressful. Every encounter brings about difficult decision-making and very little time to act. They are also oftentimes providing support for those who are traumatized and in shock. All of this routine exposure is traumatizing and requires professional help to be dealt with effectively.


Our Veterans Rehab Treatment Centers utilize the very latest in evidence-based therapy techniques like group therapy, one on one therapy, EMDR, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

Mindfulness Techniques

For those struggling with PTSD, living in the moment is extremely difficult. Our brain is trying to subconsciously protect us from the past. Part of moving forward is living in the moment. Whether taking time for yoga or hanging out listening to the birds’ chirp, mindfulness can be anything that pulls you into the present. One simple exercise for this is called the five senses.

  • What are 5 things that you can see?
  • What are 4 things that you can hear?
  • What are 3 things you can feel?
  • What are 2 things that you can smell?
  • What is 1 thing that you taste?

While doing this exercise, it helps you focus on what is around you in the moment and brings you back to the present.
