Washington State Governor Christine Gregoire signs legislation enacting and guaranteeing confidentiality for all first responders seeking help for personal & professional matters.
Due to the rapid demand for services and the opportunity to help first responders, Safe Call Now launches its national program.
Safe Call Now establishes a formal partnership with the FBINAA as a result of first responder substance abuse rates and loss of life from suicides around the country.
Safe Call Now collaborates with elite treatment providers across the country and is now considered the premier referral, resource and training organization for public safety personnel and their family members in crisis.
Safe Call Now will champion reform in every state to tie sobriety to the certification of first responders. This endeavor will take lobbying efforts in every state as no nationwide certification program exists.
Safe Call Now published our special report on Addressing Substance Abuse in the Public Safety Population.
"I am a firm believer in the Safe Call Now program. When I was first appointed Chief of Police, I encountered what I believe to be a chief's or administrator's worst nightmare. I received a call from another local chief who stated that one of my officers was threatening to kill himself. Without your help and the program knowledge Safe Call Now has, we would have been attending a funeral for this officer. My officer is back on the job and doing well. More importantly, I also have my friend back. Sean, thanks again and keep doing what you and your staff are doing because Safe Call Now is really making a difference."
Chief of Police, City of Cocoa Beach, Florida
"I have been asked repeatedly for confidential, reliable resources for our first responders and hands down, Safe Call Now is what I share. Safe Call Now is a confidential, full-service resource for first responders and their families. I recommend Safe Call Now for three reasons:
1. It is first responder friendly. 2. It is completely confidential. And, more importantly 3. It works!"

"Calling Safe Call Now six months ago saved my life. After dealing with PTSD for 20 years, I had another nightmare and frankly, was too tired to go on. I searched on my computer at 0300 hrs for "help for disabled police officers" which I have been doing for 15 years and came across their site. I made the phone call and spoke to a very nice lady who was an ex-cop and she made an appointment for me that Friday. I went and two hours later my PTSD symptoms were gone using Rapid Resolutions Therapy."
