Indiana’s first addiction treatment program for first responders up and running
An article posted by Indianapolis’ Fox 59 describes the launch of Indiana’s first substance abuse treatment program designed specifically for first responders—RESCU, offered by RCA at Indianapolis.
Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Lieutenant Tom Black, who has spent more than 30 years counseling and supporting fellow police officers and was one of the founding members of IMPD’s Police Officer Support Team, is serving as one of the primary therapists for the RESCU program. He believes addiction treatment designed just for first responders is long overdue in Indiana.
The RESCU program offers a variety of treatment and counseling options, including medication-based detoxification, individual and family counseling, psychiatric services and more. Currently, RCA has 12 beds prepared for first responders on the third floor. However, that number could be expanded to more than 50 based on response to the program.
