Mark Lamplugh, a former captain with the Lower Chichester Fire Company, is the founder of a Frontline Responder Services program in Sacramento, according to a report in Fire Engineering magazine.
The program boasts an inpatient residential facility for first responders needing treatment for PTSD and addiction. Frontline also addresses the long-term effects that the high levels of daily stress can often have on responders.
Lamplugh, Vice President of Frontline Responder Services, has put together a team of highly-experienced clinical professionals who specialize in trauma and first responder treatment.
Lamplugh, a fourth-generation firefighter, is recognized as a Crisis Stress Intervention expert on the national level by the American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress.
“We can provide our clients with the ability to address their drug or alcohol problems and the underlying causes,” said Lamplugh. “Our program combines substance abuse treatment with treatment for PTSD, depression, and other forms of mental illnesses, with the goal of helping them return to work.”
