History of our FBINAA Partnership
After a careful vetting process, in 2016 Acadia became the select provider of behavioral healthcare & addiction treatment services to the FBI National Academy Associates (FBINAA). With Acadia’s mission of providing a standard of excellence in the treatment of specialty behavioral health and addiction disorders and the FBINAA’s need for specialty treatment, the relationship between the Treatment Placement Specialists and the FBINAA was born.
Through our relationship with the FBINAA, each member of the Treatment Placement Specialists® team has been trained on triaging calls and placing first responders in the appropriate facilities.
Our work with the Officer Safety & Wellness (OSW) Committee
As an extension to our sponsorship of the FBINAA, the Treatment Placement Specialists® team also partners with the Office Safety & Wellness (OSW) committee. The OSW is a board charged by the FBINAA to change the mindset regarding mental health and wellness among law enforcement that impacts officer wellbeing and performance. To do this, the OSW conducts resiliency trainings for police leadership to equip them with the knowledge of how to discuss, among the members of their organizations, mental health issues and substance abuse caused by trauma experienced in the field. The Treatment Placement Specialists® team is proud to be a part of this training team and to help the OSW carry out its mission of behavioral health safety and wellness among first responders.
Since then, our TPS team has helped to place police officers & first responders across the country into life-changing treatment programs conducted close to 100 trainings, and set up a 24/7 hotline for the FBNINAA members and affiliates to access confidential mental health and substance abuse assessments.
