Rosecrance Florian Program for Uniformed Service Personnel

A specialized substance use and mental health program for those who serve

Uniformed service personnel — firefighters, paramedics, law enforcement officers, military, dispatchers, correctional officers, medical personnel, etc. — can encounter traumatic events at any time. To deal with the stress of their jobs, some may turn to alcohol and other drugs.

The Rosecrance Florian Program offers a path to lasting recovery for service personnel by bringing occupational factors into the treatment process.

Rosecrance was among the first behavioral health organizations in the country to create a specialized program to meet the needs of this important population with deep input from an advisory council of experts, including those from the Chicago Fire Department and Rockford Fire Department, many of whom are involved with mental health and substance use treatment outreach. The program has expanded over time with input from other populations served, and we also prioritize connecting clients with peer support to maintain a successful recovery journey.

The Rosecrance Florian Program meets unique needs

The Florian Program addresses the complex biopsychosocial issues unique to the culture of firefighters, paramedics, law enforcement officers, and military.

Core services include:

  • Treatment for co-occurring disorders such as substance abuse, PTSD, anxiety, depression and ADHD

Here’s what people say about their experience with the Rosecrance Florian Program

“I am doing amazing! I am living in sober living, just with two other girls. I have just stayed super busy and loving my sober time in the city! I have 70 days today! Made it past my 60-day curse! I have been meeting up with Jim at meetings, and have talked to the other guys over the phone, along with Jess! Life is great right now! Can’t thank you enough for everything! Hope you are well!”

— Nikki P.


All is well here! Today is Day 172 for me, I’m on duty at the firehouse, and I’m grateful that I’m not having any significant problems walking the straight and narrow.”

— D. O.


“Today, I celebrated one full year clean and sober. I cannot express how HUGE this is for me. You all were such a huge part of my success with this. Rosecrance started my path to recovery, and a year later here I am. I have a great job, I’m in school working toward a degree in social work and human services, and heavily involved with my recovery with my recovery community here. I’m so grateful to all of you for this gift and I look forward to doing for others as you all did for me. You helped save my life and give me life.”

— Jess G.
