 The Addictions Coach: Deputy Suffering with Addiction Steals over 1,000 pills from Drug Take-Back Program

Our first responders, law enforcement, and public officers need to feel that they have a safe place to turn if they are dealing with an addiction.

Their jobs are to protect, serve and keep safe the communities they work and live in.  They put themselves in harms way and see things on duty that we only imagine in our worst nightmares.

But what happens when it’s our first responders and law enforcement who are dealing with the physical pain that comes after chasing down criminals, the mental and emotional anguish of not being able to forget a particularly horrific crime scene, or not being able to get to that last person in the burning house?  Our first responders are trained to be the strong ones, not break-down, or show emotion.  Take a pill and get into uniform, its another day and lives need saving.

But they are still only human, and it’s all too easy for an addiction to take hold, when a few drinks or pills erase the bad memories or dull the shoulder pain, even for a few hours.  But, as the story below shows, an addict will go to more desperate measures to fuel their addiction, if they feel they have no other way.

THERE IS ANOTHER WAY

If you or a loved one, or even a co-worker,  is a first responder, or in law enforcement, and suffering with an addiction, the elite team at The Addictions Coach is  here to help!  Please call 1.800.706.0318
