Understanding Your Unique Challenges and Strengths

The very strengths professionals have—problem-solving, caretaking, perfectionism—can be stumbling blocks to recovery from addiction. In industries that revolve around serving others, professionals themselves sometimes find that they are the ones being pushed toward addiction treatment. Long hours, heavy workloads, and high-stress environments sometimes lead to unsafe, unprofessional behavior, and impairment allegations.

Challenges to recovery may include:

  • Easy access to prescription medications such as narcotics
  • Trauma or stressors that are specific to your occupation
  • Excessive work hours that impact self-care and work/life balance
  • A workplace culture where alcohol and drug use is prevalent

Customized Treatment Plans for Professionals

We tailor your treatment plan based on a comprehensive assessment of your progress and specific needs. Based on this unique assessment, our clinicians may expand your treatment plan.

  • Stress management

Alcohol and other drug addictions are chronic, progressive diseases, and no one is immune to their effects.

Collaborating from Day One

Because we communicate continuously with key professionals like licensing board staff and referents as well as individuals involved in peer assistance, we ensure that you are given the tools you need to succeed once you leave our care. Anxiety, trauma, depression and other co-occurring mental health issues are common. We can provide discharge planning and referral documentation about your specific mental health diagnoses while taking an integrated approach to your care, which allows us to treat all concerns at one time.

Through our Impaired Professionals Program, we also work to formulate continued care, and monitoring to address issues after you return to work, such as:

  • Restoration of your career
  • Reputation of your practice
  • Disciplinary matters associated with your license
