What to Expect
The First Responders Program at River Oaks empowers the client to re-establish connections with life. Through our curriculum, with a heavy emphasis of stress management from the chronic, long term effects of exposure, we help our first responders realize they can rebuild from their trauma.
Clients are grouped with other first responders, just like them. We help them unpack what they are “supposed to be able to handle” and replace it with healthy expectations and coping mechanisms. Our team guides them expertly through methods of overcoming their compassion fatigue to allow themselves to accept help, instead of avoiding a focus on self.
