Working Professionals Need Help Too

Working professionals face high-stress situations and demands above and beyond most people in the workplace. CEOs and other executives, pilots, medical professionals, emergency-related services, social workers, lawyers, and more tend to face higher on-the-job stresses, leading to higher rates of mental health problems and addiction.

Attending executive drug rehab or executive alcohol rehab is the best way to secure any career-related certifications or licensing requirements while also overcoming your addiction and mental health problems, long-term.

Working Professionals, Mental Health & Addiction

Many professionals have high-stress jobs, and those who work in medicine, as pilots, or attorneys, are required to pass certain tests and certifications regularly, which can add to the stress of their jobs. For this reason, and many more, professionals often struggle in isolation with mental health problems or addiction. 

  • 42% of pilots in a study were found to have controlled drugs, prescription drugs, OTC drugs, opioids, and other drugs in their system when tested. 
  • Between 10% and 15% of all doctors struggle with substance abuse or addiction at some point in their career. 
  • Around 36% of lawyers struggle with alcohol abuse as early as the first year in law school. 

Professionals are not immune to the high risk of co-occurring conditions, often addiction and some form of mental health problem. In fact, self-medicating for mental health struggles like depression, high stress, and anxiety lead to high levels of alcohol and drug addiction. 

  • 26% of pilots self-reported mental health concerns. 
  • Nearly half of attorneys present with depression at least once in their career, another 12% reporting suicidal thoughts at least once. 
  • 80% of doctors have presented with some form of mental health problems like depression or anxiety. During COVID, only 13% of them sought help.

Many of these statistics are based on self-reported data, which means that professionals might not have been honest when submitting information to a questionnaire. And that means the rates of professionals with mental health problems or addiction might very well be much higher, and yet the rate of people getting help remains stagnant and low.

Keep Your Job & Receive Treatment

When you enter alcohol rehab for professionals, or executive drug rehab, you need a rehab for professionals that understands the importance of keeping your job and receiving treatment. Executive rehab programs do just that: they work with courts, licensing boards, and employers to ensure you get the help you need for long-term sobriety while also meeting requirements to get back to work.

Job-Related Stress

We understand that working in certain fields like medical fields, legal fields, and many others can take a toll on your mental and physical well-being, which, in many cases, can lead to drugs or alcohol as a coping mechanism to that stress.

Driven and ambitious executives, pilots, lawyers, and many other professionals tend to be type-A personalities which means they push themselves beyond their limits, work long hours, and fail to employ any type of self-care. Stressful jobs full of highly demanding situations can cause individuals to turn to drugs or alcohol to cope with things like physical pain, insomnia, depression, anxiety, or stress.

The Benefits of an Executive Rehab Program

It takes a great deal of courage to ask for help, especially when operating in a high-stress career. Many professionals see asking for help as a sign of weakness, but we see it as the opposite: getting executive alcohol rehab is a sign of strength.

We know how much is at stake when your career is on the line, and that is why our executive rehab program is designed to help you pause the goings-on of your daily routine and make whatever changes are necessary to live a healthier, happier life.


Personal Evaluations

Whether you need executive drug rehab or executive alcohol rehab, we start your journey with evaluations. These evaluations are very important because they help our team better understand your specific issues, including mental health problems and substance abuse or addiction.


Customized Treatment​

By understanding all of the aspects of your evaluation, we can provide customized rehab for professionals. one individual might need alcohol rehab for professionals while another needs executive rehab for mental health problems primarily followed by an addiction to alcohol or drugs secondarily.


Holistic Approaches

Another part of this is a holistic treatment. In order to treat the mind, body, and soul as one unit, your evidence-based practice has to be combined with a holistic treatment that can give you other tools to cope with stress or anger in the workplace and out. Just like evidence-based practices, holistic approaches are recommended based on your initial evaluation. These can extend to practices like mindfulness, emotional regulation, meditation, yoga, hiking, healthy eating, and much more. Finding what works best for you will provide the highest chance of long-term success.
