Drug And Alcohol Rehab Centers For Law Enforcement & First Responders In Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico Drug and Alcohol Treatment Centers for Members of Law Enforcement

Throughout the territory of Puerto Rico, addicts and their families have access to many different types of drug and alcohol rehabilitation. This includes residential programs, outpatient centers, and the necessary detox to help moderate or severe addictions. For the members of law enforcement living within the area, there are some treatment facilities, which are equipped to treat addiction among these individuals. Unfortunately, despite the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration directory website providing extensive listings of programs within the area, there is not a specific category for programs that can help members of law enforcement.

What causes addiction for those who work in law enforcement?

The nature of the problem can stem from many different issues, but more often than not it is linked to PTSD and stress caused by the job. This is one of the more important aspects to treat and help an addict through while they are in drug rehabilitation. Police officers are exposing themselves to dangerous situations regularly, and some of these problems become difficult to deal with as time progresses, especially if they are doing nothing about the problem, and end up turning to drugs and alcohol as a method of coping.
