Drug & Alcohol Rehab for Professionals

At Continuum Recovery Center we understand how difficult it is for professionals to receive rehab services for substance abuse and alcohol addiction. Most professionals simply can’t take time off work. For this reason, we offer a unique program that provides treatment and recovery in an environment where your job doesn’t suffer.

What makes our program different is its focus on IOP/OP (Individualized Outpatient Program). We know that many people who struggle with addiction are working full-time or have other responsibilities that make getting into rehab difficult. At Continuum Recovery Center, we provide a safe space for people to recover from their addictions while they continue to do what they love.

Our program allows them to come to us at any hour of the day or night and receive the care they need without having to miss work.

Our staff understands the challenges facing professionals who struggle with alcoholism and other addictions. We are dedicated to helping them achieve sobriety and find new ways to live their lives.

Here’s how Continuum’s Drug & Alcohol Rehab for Professionals program works.

Addiction Treatment for Professionals

According to the National Institute of Health (NIH) research, approximately 1 out of every 10 people who work full time develops a substance abuse problem each year. There are some professions where people tend to be more prone to substance abuse issues than others. These include:

  • Truck Drivers
  • Lawyers
  • Judges
  • Licensed professionals
  • Corporate executives
  • Healthcare professionals (Doctors, nurses, etc.)
  • Police officers

Addiction among these professionals often results from their job stresses and pressures. Addiction rates among lawyers, CEOs, and entrepreneurs are high. These jobs often involve long hours and high levels of stress, which can lead to mental illness. Some people who suffer from depression might use drugs and alcohol to self-medicate their condition. Drug abuse or alcohol dependence may result from an individual’s inability to cope effectively with stressors.

Professional individuals quite often become functioning alcoholics or drug users. It doesn’t mean they don’t have a problem, it just means the problem hasn’t gotten out of hand yet. Most people who suffer from an addictive disorder don’t seek treatment until they’ve reached a crisis point. Drinking too much alcohol may affect people’s career prospects if not combatted early. Besides this reason to seek help from a rehab center, drug and alcohol abuse by professionals has been linked to relationship difficulties and lower levels of job satisfaction.

What Makes Continuum Recovery Different, Better?

Continuum Recovery has solutions to meet each individual’s needs. Our addiction recovery program is tailored to meet you where you’re at with your situation.

Our team provides both addiction counseling and professional services to help people who suffer from addictions such as alcoholism and/or drug addiction.

Here are some other ways we help busy professionals:

  • Behavioral Health Management (We provide behavioral health services to help clients manage stress and anxiety. If you’re struggling with depression or anxiety, these conditions can lead to substance abuse. In addition to providing counseling, we also offer medication management.)
  • Medication Management (The use of medications as part of a comprehensive treatment plan is becoming increasingly popular among those seeking addiction treatment. Medications used to treat alcohol dependence can be very effective.)
  • Detoxification (A detoxification program helps patients get off drugs quickly. The process involves removing all traces of the drug from your body. Detoxification is one of the most important aspects of addiction treatment.)
  • Substance Abuse Counseling (Counseling is an essential component of addiction treatment. It teaches coping skills and provides emotional support.)
  • Group Therapy (Group therapy sessions allow participants to share experiences and learn from one another. Group therapy is a great way to build relationships and strengthen friendships.)
  • Individual Therapy (Individual therapy sessions are designed to address specific problems that arise during group therapy. Individual therapy is usually provided in a private setting.)
  • Family Support (Family members play an important role in addiction recovery. Family members should be involved in any treatment plan.)
  • Case Management (This service allows us to coordinate care between multiple providers. Case managers can help connect patients with other resources such as housing, medical assistance, employment services, mental health services, legal aid, transportation, family support, etc.)

We understand that there are many reasons why someone would want to enter rehab. Some clients are looking for help because they are struggling with alcohol addiction. Others are seeking help because they are addicted to drugs such as cocaine, heroin, methamphetamines, prescription pills, etc. Still others are seeking help after suffering a traumatic event such as domestic violence, different types of abuses, suicide attempts, accidents, etc.

Whatever the cause, we will help you overcome your addiction.

How Assessments Work at Alcohol Rehab Centers

We offer personalized assessments at Continuum Recovery Center. Assessment helps to identify whether you have an alcohol use disorder (AUD) or drug abuse problem. It may be helpful for determining which treatment options will best suit your needs. It allows your rehabilitation team to recommend treatments for addiction that work for your unique situation.

Our drug rehabilitation program will focus on exploring these factors during your evaluation:

  • Your history of substance use
  • Your current level of functioning
  • What types of substances you have been using
  • If you’ve had previous treatment
  • Whether you suffer from co-occurring disorders

It’s also possible to take advantage of our assessment tools to determine what kind of treatment will benefit you the most. We’ll discuss these tools with you during your assessment.

Example questions that will be asked during your assessment are:

  • What do you think caused your substance use?
  • Do you feel like you have control over your drinking or drug use?
  • Do you believe that you have a problem with substance use?
  • Are you currently working toward abstinence?
  • Have you ever sought treatment before?
  • What were the results of your last attempt at treatment?
  • Why did you decide to seek treatment?
  • Why did you choose this particular center?
  • Do you have any concerns about entering treatment?
  • Is there anything else you’d like to tell me?

Once we assess your situation we develop and structure a customized plan to assist you in quitting alcohol use. Then we work with you to implement it successfully. Along the way to total recovery we measure everything and keep you involved ongoingly. 

Part of Rehab for Professionals Involves Medical Detox

You will likely experience some degree of physical and mental withdrawal when you quit alcohol or drugs. It may include feverishness, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headaches, muscle aches, joint pain, extreme hunger, and intense alcohol cravings. Supervised withdrawal programs offer medically monitored treatment for alcohol addiction. Medically Assisted Treatment (MAT) is designed to reduce the severity of symptoms associated with detoxification.

Our drug rehab team is here for you every step of the way. You will receive medical care while you’re detoxing. A doctor will monitor your progress throughout the process.

The goal of MAT is to prevent complications that could occur without medical intervention. Our doctors will closely monitor your condition and adjust medications as needed.

Outpatient Rehab for Professionals

Depending on your situation, outpatient rehabilitation can be an option. You won’t have to miss work. This uniquely structured outpatient rehab for professional program works alongside your work commitments to ensure there is no disruption to your day-to-day life. Many other alcohol rehab programs miss this important point.

Bottom Line

Addiction affects everyone differently. Your situation may be different than someone else’s. We want to help you understand why certain things happen so you can better manage them. You might not need some of these services if they don’t fit. If you’re considering any type of treatment, please talk with us first before committing yourself to anything. At Continuum Recovery Center we have a long and proven track record of helping people recover from addictions.

We know that addiction is a disease and that recovery takes time and commitment. That’s why we provide a continuum of care and support. When you come to us, we will give you the personalized attention you deserve. We want to make sure you get all the help you need to overcome your addiction and lead a happy and healthy life.
