IAFF members are twice as likely as the general population to suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and co-occurring addictions. That’s why a treatment center specifically for the fire service is more important now than ever before.
The IAFF Center of Excellence provides evidence-based care for addiction and co-occurring disorders, including PTSD, anxiety and depression.
Through an essential partnership between the IAFF and Advanced Recovery Systems, a nationwide leader in rehabilitation and behavioral health, the IAFF Center of Excellence is a flagship recovery center where IAFF members can face their struggles directly.
Located in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, the IAFF Center for Excellence is just 30 minutes from Washington, DC, and an hour from Dulles International Airport. The 15-acre campus location is ideal for focusing on treatment and recovery.
The IAFF Center of Excellence is exclusively for IAFF members who struggle with alcoholism or drug abuse and need help addressing co-occurring behavioral health issues such as PTSD, depression or anxiety. You’ll feel as though you are among your brothers and sisters — because you are.
