Treatment For Professionals
Our drug abuse treatment center in Kentucky is dedicated to providing evidence-based, high-quality addiction treatment for Kentucky residents and beyond.
Professionals and Addiction
The annual National Survey on Drug Use and Health provides data regarding addiction across all demographics in the United States. Data provided as part of the 2018 survey suggests more than 22 million Americans from all demographics struggle with at least one addiction. Addiction is a disease that does not discriminate. It can and does affect people of all ages, races, sexual orientations, backgrounds, and economic statuses. It is safe to say that most people know someone who struggles with an addiction to drugs or alcohol.
There are often multiple barriers to seeking or getting treatment for many Americans who could benefit from the professional services offered at a drug and alcohol rehab. For some, a significant obstacle is their profession or employment. Some people may feel they cannot leave their place of work to attend an inpatient treatment program. Others may worry about potential difficulties at their job if they take time off to seek help to overcome addiction. Still, others may be concerned about losing their jobs if they go to rehab. Therefore, they put their employment responsibilities ahead of potentially lifesaving addiction treatment needs. This can be a major source of stress for business owners and people in high-level management positions.
Concerns about leaving work to enter treatment are common among people in high-level management positions. Chief Executive Officers (CEOs), Chief Financial Officers (CFO’s), and Chief Operating Officers (COO’s), medical providers, lawyers, etc., all experience struggles putting rehab needs first. Rehab for professionals, or executive rehab programs, are designed for people to seek recovery while maintaining their working responsibilities. While this is not always the best option, many may find their work-life is a primary factor in preventing them from seeking help with substance abuse. These programs help those people work around that aspect to be able to seek treatment.
Substance abuse can affect anyone, regardless of their profession or income. When many people think of someone who struggles with addiction, whether drugs or alcohol, they often envision someone who’s down on their luck. Television, movies, and popular media have not helped with this stigma. Contrary to the popular opinion of many, most Americans who struggle with a substance use disorder are employed. Some hold down positions as doctors, lawyers, athletes, entertainers, accountants, and many others. According to data from the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, the majority of people who engage in binge drinking are employed.

How to Know if Someone is Addicted
Keep Your Job and Receive Treatment
Individuals in high-level management or ownership positions are also more likely to feel high levels of stress associated with their work. For these people, increased stress levels may also increase their risk of developing a substance use disorder. Members of the medical and some mental health community members are at a significantly increased risk because they are surrounded by potentially addictive substances every day. It’s not uncommon for people in high-stress positions to turn to drugs and alcohol as a way to calm their nerves, relax, socialize with peers, or reduce the severity of certain medical symptoms that inhibit their ability to do their job effectively. Once addiction develops, however, quitting without the help of an executive drug and alcohol rehab could be challenging.
Executive rehabs or alcohol and drug rehabs for professionals allow individuals to seek treatment in a private, confidential, secure environment while still keeping their jobs. Executive rehabs typically offer benefits not found in other rehabs, such as working online or using the phone are needed. However, despite these added benefits explicitly related to executive rehab, choosing a professional rehab like Robert Alexander Center ensures you receive the highest level, evidence-based care.

Preparing for Treatment
The Benefits of an Executive Rehab
Substance abuse treatment programs are designed to be private, regardless of if they are professional rehab programs or not. The difference between a traditional inpatient rehab program and an executive program is how you interact with the outside world. At the majority of traditional inpatient treatment facilities, you would stay at an on-site facility and during treatment, you would only have limited access to the outside world, including internet access and cellphone use.
Executive treatment facilities are different, however. Most professional programs allow people more access to cellphones and computers to allow them to work and stay in contact with the outside world. While this is not the best way to engage with treatment for some people, others may find it impossible to enter treatment for weeks without losing their employment. Professional treatment programs allow for a person to seek the help they need without having to worry about being unable to fulfill their work obligations.
Although more access to the outside world is allowed in executive treatment programs, the emphasis on treatment remains on achieving sobriety through personal reflection and building of coping skills needed to avoid relapse. Professional rehab programs also may offer different levels of treatment. Some may focus on luxury accommodations, including spa service, to help reduce the stress associated with the recovery process. Other facilities may offer professional work areas, with meeting rooms for digital meetings.
Professional rehab facilities are also usually less crowded and offer a quieter environment since many patients are focused on work and their own recovery. It is important to understand all the options available during treatment so that you are best able to decide which path towards recovery is best for your individual needs. The most effective treatment plan is always going to be the one that is best able to account for your personal needs and goals.
