(http://www.360wellness.org/) and is currently the Vice President with Sprout Health Group (http://www.sprouthealthgroup.com/) and their Frontline Program (www.frontlinerehab.com).  

Lamplugh is also nationally recognized in Crisis Stress Intervention through the American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress. He has helped hundreds of firefighters, police officers, veterans, EMS personnel, and civilians nationwide find help for addiction, alcoholism, PTSD, and mental health support. He can be reached for comment at mark@360wellness.org.

Joining Mark on today’s show is therapist Bill Von Glahn CADC with the Frontline program at Advanced Health & Education (www.advhealth.com). Bill has been working and treating firefighters and other first responders for several years, and we are going to learn some of the aspects and challenges of working with firefighters. We will also talk about some of the things firefighters should expect in treatment and some of the things they should do if they complete treatment and go back to work. Often time we hear about the problems firefighters have or will have, but we rarely hear about what happens after you accept help. Bill is going to shed light on those exact things during the show.  You can reach Bill for questions at his email bill@advhealth.com.
