Our staff at LA Detox has come to the realization that one of the biggest misconceptions surrounding addiction is who people believe are struggling. Often, the public imagines a character from a movie as an addict — one with no home, family, or future. However, this couldn’t be farther from the truth. In fact, one of the largest groups who struggle with addiction is business professionals. 

Those in need of treatment who want to do it anonymously are the ones who best fit the mold for professional addiction treatment. At a private drug and alcohol rehab center like ours, you can receive the support you need to get sober and learn to thrive again in recovery in confidence.

What Is a Professional Addiction Treatment Program?

It’s important to remember that no individual is immune from falling victim to addiction. For business professionals, this can be a hard fact to face. They wish to keep up the image of a professional who doesn’t struggle with addiction and who has everything together. When you need treatment while still wanting to work, you need a professionals addiction treatment program. During this program, clients receive the help they need without having to sacrifice their career or reputation. Access to computers, phones, and conference rooms are available through this program that other programs don’t offer to ensure work can take place during treatment.

A professional’s addiction treatment program also understands the importance of privacy during the time in treatment. For this reason, this program will ensure privacy and use discretion to protect clients. This type of program also tends to include more luxury amenities to help professionals feel comfortable and accomplish their work properly.

A professional addiction treatment program will also help clients learn how to manage their work-related stress as it relates to their addiction. For many, the stress of their job and the need to perform well contributes to their addictions. To continue in their career without the need to abuse substances, this program will give them the tools they require for stress management. This means reaching success healthily without relapse.

Why Jobs Can Cause Substance Abuse

There are many factors that can cause a business professional to develop substance abuse. One of the major factors is constant stress that plagues their everyday life. For example, they may be on strict deadlines, have to deal with a difficult client base or have to answer to a boss that they don’t agree with a lot of the time. 

They know that they must deal with these areas of their business because if they don’t, they could ultimately lose their job and source of income. This, in turn, creates another layer of stress added onto them. They may be feeling pressured by their spouse or family to uphold a certain level of lifestyle that their current job provides them. If they don’t follow through, they may face the potential for divorce or not being able to take care of loved ones.

Because this unwanted stress in their life is unavoidable, an easy way to block out the overwhelming thoughts and feelings they may have is through substance abuse. They may begin to slowly turn to drugs and alcohol to numb the hardships they are facing in their workplace.

Development of Multiple Disorders and Dual-Diagnosis

Stress from the workplace not only can lead to substance abuse, but it can also cause business professionals to develop other coexisting mental disorders. Anxiety, depression, and personality disorders are common amongst those who are under constant stress because of their job. 

When one or more other disorders occur alongside substance abuse, an even bigger problem emerges. The coexisting disorders lengthen the recovery process time and make it harder to fully accept treatment methods. 

In order to better treat these types of individuals that suffer from multiple disorders at once, our medical professionals at LA Detox have developed a dual-diagnosis program that can be incorporated into your executive treatment program. Dual-diagnosis simply means that every present disorder has been recognized and will be treated together.

By incorporating dual-diagnosis treatment into our executive addiction program, we hope to help clients learn how to manage their work-related stress as it relates to their addiction. For many, the stress of their job and the need to perform well contributes to their addictions. To continue in their career without the need to abuse substances, this program will give them the tools they require for stress management. This means reaching success healthily without relapse.

The Difference Between Standard and Professional Addiction Treatment

Standard treatment is what most people think of when they think about rehab. Whenever treatment centers are shown on TV or in a movie, standard residential treatment is what is being broadcasted. Standard treatment is for the everyday person who just wants to simply receive help for their addiction, but their family and friends are allowed to participate in treatments with them to grow bonds between them and strengthen their relationships.

Most of the time, standard treatment does not allow contact from the outside world through phones, computers, and TVs. This is due to the fact that many addicts are influenced heavily by the things they see and the people they surround themselves with. Because of this, their screen time is often limited to almost none unless they want to make a phone call to a family member to update them on their progress.

Executive treatment programs are seen to be more private than standard residential programs. They allow the addicted individual to recover at their own pace without anyone from the outside world knowing that they are receiving help. Executive programs also allow their patients to keep up a somewhat normal work schedule by allowing them monitored access to technology because most of their positions at work would not allow them to take the necessary amount of time off to complete rehab. 

Why Are Professional Programs Needed?

It’s important to remember that no individual is immune from falling victim to addiction. For business professionals, this can be a hard fact to face. They wish to keep up the image of a professional who doesn’t struggle with addiction and who has many areas of their life figured out, especially that of their career.

When you need treatment while still wanting to work, you need a professional addiction treatment program. During this type of program, clients receive the help they need without having to sacrifice their career or reputation. A professional’s addiction treatment program also understands the importance of privacy during the time in treatment. For this reason, this program will ensure privacy and use discretion to protect clients. 

In order to perform at the highest level in the workplace and be successful, a clear, grounded mindset is needed to make decisions and work towards goals. Once a business professional becomes wrapped up in their addiction, they are no longer able to complete simple tasks, much less perform to the best of their ability. At LA Detox, one of the goals of our business professional program is that we hope to help as many patients as we can to attain sobriety.

Take Back Control of Your Life

The weight of the world may feel like it’s resting on your shoulders as a business professional. The many stresses of your job can sometimes be too much to bear, and you may react by turning to addiction. It is important to remember that a one-time choice of abusing alcohol or drugs can turn into a lifelong struggle of substance addiction.

Addiction doesn’t have to continue to control your life though, and there are many reasons to strive to live a sober life. When you find your reason to reach sobriety, our staff at LA Detox is willing to do anything we possibly can to help you reach your goal. Through a range of programs and addiction therapy services, you can start practicing much healthier habits. These habits will ultimately lead you to live a more fulfilled life.
