Brattleboro USP program


NAFFVN believes that there are options out there. Using the acronym "YAHOO" meaning You Always Have Options have a look at this short you tube video and if your thinking about a treatment option then go on to the Brattleboro USP program information on their web site.

Along with West Coast Post Trauma Retreat out of San Francisco the balance in your choice of where to get help means you can move into treatment for stress and PTSD with competent care givers. Many benefit programs are able to cover costs. Getting strategic about how to access your benefits we suggest you explore your options and make a commitment.

A.A. has been around and is considered to be a program available to be accessed under disability benefits. Regardless of how it looks gaining access to the funding, we feel that getting into a treatment program allows you to explore other areas which may be affecting how you think and react to stress related to your job as a first responder in the firefighter, law enforcement, military or ems front lines.

THINK ABOUT IT! Remember to stay safe with your mental and physical health.
