Texas’ Leading First Responder Residential Treatment Program

At Starlite Recovery Center, we offer services specifically for first responders who are struggling with behavioral health concerns. Through our Cover 6 program, we aim to help our patients who selflessly serve their communities lay a foundation for lasting healing.

Serving the First Responder Community

It is not uncommon for emergency responders to share strong, familylike bonds with one another. Due to the nature of their occupations, they often have experiences that only their peers can relate to. At Starlite Recovery Center, our team features former first responders who provide an authentic source of support and empathy for the patients in our Cover 6 program.  

We understand that many members of the emergency response community have endured events that have negatively impacted their lives. For this reason, we proudly offer residential programming that addresses the unique needs of this population.  

By seeking care at our facility, first responders can receive the focused care they need to achieve the best outcomes possible. Our compassionate professionals deliver clinically excellent services in a safe, confidential space. 

Comprehensive Treatment Experience

Prior to admission, each patient participates in a thorough initial evaluation. The information gathered during this appointment can help our team learn more about the goals and strengths of the individual, as well as their medical history and past substance use. 

Each person who participates in our Cover 6 program receives a treatment plan that is customized for them. Depending on their needs, a patient’s care may incorporate: 

  • Individual therapy 
  • Family therapy 
  • Group sessions that cover topics like relapse prevention, anger management, and communication 
  • Experiential therapies such as meditation and art  

First responders who are going through withdrawal must complete medical detoxification at our facility prior to entering this program. Once detox is complete, patients who have a co-occurring mental health concern can continue to receive medication management services on a case-by-case basis.  

About Cover 6

Our Cover 6 program is available for adults age 18 and older who have a primary diagnosis of a substance use disorder. We also provide services for those who have co-occurring mental health concerns like anxiety, depression, and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).  

This specialized programming addresses the needs of a diverse group of professionals, including: 

  • Emergency nurses 
  • Law enforcement 
  • Dispatch workers 
  • Firefighters 
  • Paramedics 
  • Correctional officers 

Our first responder program incorporates a variety of therapeutic modalities, such as eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and motivational interviewing. Our experienced team works with each patient to determine which services and therapies they can benefit from the most. 

Our hope is that each person leaves our care with coping skills and strategies that can help them sustain recovery. When your time at Starlite Recovery Center comes to an end, we will help ensure that you have the resources needed to continue achieving success by providing you with a detailed aftercare plan.
