American Addiction Centers has been selected by the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) as the provider of the National Fire Services Member Assistance Program (MAP) for all NVFC members and their families. The certified counselors of American Addiction Centers are available 24/7 via a toll-free, confidential phone line at 1-888-731-FIRE (3473) to provide assistance with issues including substance abuse, relationship / psychological problems, or any issue disturbing a member’s career and wellness. Services are offered as part of the member benefit package, at no cost to NVFC members or their immediate family.
This is the first NVFC program of its kind since its inception in 1976!
More Exciting Programs
In conjunction with the Firefighter Behavioral Health Alliance (FBHA) and Counseling Services for Fire Fighters, our counselors and therapists are trained and certified in two programs focused on the firefighter culture, suicide trends among firefighters, and how to effectively counsel and intervene:
- Saving Those Who Save Others is a FBHA program that educates counselors and firefighters about suicide prevention.
- A Firefighter’s Life is a Counseling Services for Fire Fighters program that helps counselors better understand the culture of the fire service.
Jeff Dill, MA, LPC, is founder of both the Firefighter Behavioral Health Alliance and Counseling Services for Fire Fighters. He is a licensed counselor and Captain in the fire service.
American Addiction Centers is the only standing treatment center that will be certified by both organizations, further ensuring its exceptional care and dedication to the health and wellbeing of firefighters and their family members.
