Barriers to Addiction Treatment for Professionals

The idea of leaving home and what you know behind to get addiction treatment is scary for anyone, no matter their career or lifestyle. For professionals with very demanding careers, however, this can become even more intimidating and be a barrier to receiving life-saving treatment.

When someone is in a high-level position at work, they may feel like they can’t leave because they have too many responsibilities. They may feel leaving for rehab could impact the business as a whole or their career. There’s a sense of anxiety about the stigma of addiction and seeking help at a drug and alcohol rehab center, and the damage someone might worry about it causing to their reputation.

While these challenges all exist, there are simultaneously high substance misuse and addiction rates among people in leadership roles. These are often considered functional addictions because someone continues to perform at such a high level, but they’re also masking the burden of their addiction. It’s easy to deny the extent of a substance use disorder when you’re performing well in your career and are a respected professional or executive.

Certain traits specific to high-level professionals can also raise the risk of addictions. For example, many CEOs and people in high-level positions at work seek out new experiences and are risk-takers. That desire to find new and exciting ways to do things is part of why someone might become successful, but it can also mean they’re more susceptible to substance misuse and addiction.  

People who seek out new experiences tend to have suppressed dopamine signaling in their brains and seek out high stimulation levels as a result.

Individuals who excel in their careers and are in leadership positions may also have unmet needs from their childhood. High-powered professionals often had difficulties in their childhood, so they then would take on the role of the family hero. Once someone becomes successful in later life, they might feel as if their expectations still aren’t met, and they’re still struggling with unresolved issues from their childhoods.

Perfectionism can be another trait of people who excel at work and are more likely to develop a substance use disorder. Someone who’s a perfectionist holds high standards for the people who work for them and surround them and for themselves. They might then turn to substances to self-medicate difficult emotions stemming from this desire for perfection and control.

Centric Behavioral Health offers an executive drug rehab program that considers all of these unique factors that can play a role in developing substance use disorders among business leaders and executives.

Features of Addiction Treatment for Professionals and Executives

Professionals and executives have busy schedules and many responsibilities they have to juggle, sometimes even when they are in treatment. A program that offers addiction treatment for professionals and executives might include access to computers, Wi-Fi, and private conference rooms where they can work on a flexible schedule while in inpatient treatment.

Other features that can be important are discretion, privacy, and seclusion. Someone seeking out treatment when they work in a very visible or high-profile position will need the utmost confidentiality during each step of their treatment process.

Some professionals prefer luxury amenities while they’re away at treatment.

Centric Behavioral Health offers programs in Tennessee, Florida, New Jersey, and nationwide to address the unique needs of professionals, executives, and CEOs who want an effective drug or alcohol addiction treatment program.

Types of Rehab Programs

For the vast majority of people with an addiction to drugs or alcohol, medical detox is a necessary first step.

When someone uses drugs or alcohol for a period of time, they can develop a dependence. Stopping can then disrupt the function of their brain and body, creating uncomfortable and sometimes dangerous withdrawal symptoms.

Expert medical professionals staff a medical detox, delivering constant care during withdrawal. Medications can be provided to clients as medically appropriate to keep them safe and comfortable and reduce cravings.

Successfully detoxing then allows a client to move onto the next level of their treatment.

Inpatient addiction treatment for professionals and executives requires living onsite in a residential environment. Living onsite for a treatment period helps clients remove themselves from certain triggers and reminders of their substance use. They’re with other people sharing similar experiences and have the ongoing support of expert addiction medicine providers.

Inpatient rehab is the most intensive treatment, and the bulk of the day is structured and scheduled to support recovery. Treatments are offered in group and individual settings, including behavioral therapies.

Holistic approaches such as art therapy, yoga, meditation, or music therapy might also be integrated into inpatient rehab.

  • At Centric Behavioral Health, there are different levels of outpatient rehab, which include:
  • Partial hospitalization programs are similar to inpatient rehab in intensity and all-day programming scheduling. The difference is that clients can return home in the evenings.
  •  Intensive outpatient programs are a step down from partial hospitalization. The sessions are longer and more intensive than traditional outpatient treatment but allow clients to have a sense of accountability in their recovery, as well as flexibility and independence.
  • Traditional outpatient rehab is the most flexible offering. Outpatient rehab programs can work for someone with a milder addiction or as part of a continuum of care. There’s a high degree of self-accountability and responsibility for recovery, but clients remain connected to the treatment center and their provider team.

Aftercare is a broad term that can refer to any number of things following the end of a formal addiction treatment program. For example, a treatment team might offer referrals to support groups like 12-step programs for clients when they return home.
