Professional Men and Women With Substance Abuse

With the added pressures executives, managers, and other professionals face in their work each day, they often turn to unhealthy coping mechanisms, such as substance abuse. According to SAMHSA, 12.1% of individuals who hold managerial positions misuse substances. Of all occupations participating in this survey, this was the third-highest rate of substance abuse.

This high rate of substance abuse among professionals could be attributed to a number of causes, such as:

  • Financial stressors
  • Performance standards and expectations
  • Family or home issues
  • Imposter syndrome: the feeling of not being qualified for the position you’re in
  • Risk-taking mentality

Stressful life and work situations are something that most people experience, but professionals may experience these pressures to a higher degree. There is often an innate desire for men and women to provide, and when aspects of their work or home lives interfere with this ability, the result can be damaging to their psyche. If these individuals turn to a substance to manage their emotions, even more damage may take place.

Types of Executive Substance Abuse Treatment Programs We Offer

Effective addiction treatment for executives can consist of inpatient treatment or outpatient programs, depending on the particular addiction(s) and level of care needed. Our rehab center addresses the root issues related to addiction while practicing discretion so that you can receive drug and alcohol treatment without fear of professional repercussions. 

Our treatment model incorporates a variety of evidence-based therapeutic interventions, including:

Inpatient program – Often called “residential program”, this is a dual diagnosis program often more appropriate for individuals with substance use disorders who relapse frequently, have had addiction problems in the past, or have some other addiction or medical issue that requires them to stay in a treatment center. Clients will stay at our rehab center for the duration of their treatment which can last anywhere from 30 to 90 days, or longer, depending on how your treatment team evaluates your progress in recovery.

Executive outpatient treatment – This program can vary in intensity and frequency depending on your needs. It is most suitable for those who need less supervision and still want to continue to work, go to school, or have family lives. 

Intensive outpatient program (IOP) – This is similar to an outpatient treatment plan, but you are required to attend treatment sessions more frequently. IOP treatment for professionals is typically recommended for those who have just left residential treatment or those who have a past history of relapse. As your recovery progresses, you will graduate into a standard outpatient program.

Aftercare program – Our aftercare program provides group therapy and support to aid you in your transition back to work.

Treatment Types Used in Our Rehab Program for Professionals

Longbranch Recovery Center uses a highly flexible treatment approach that allows us to provide a wide range of treatment options to fit the individual needs of our patients. Some treatment options that are offered to professionals in New Orleans, LA include:

Medical detox – For anyone whose substance use cannot be stopped without experiencing withdrawal, a detox program will be necessary. Our goal is to ensure that our patients feel comfortable and safe during their detox process. Medical professionals will administer medications to help patients control their drug cravings and to help them feel more comfortable during withdrawal from alcohol or drugs.

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) – DBT is a treatment that has been proven to reduce substance use in people with complicated mental health issues. Using DBT, we can concurrently treat your addiction and the mental health issues that drive it.

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) – CBT has been shown to be highly effective in treating alcohol and drug addiction. The cornerstone of CBT is teaching addicts how to deal with their cravings and the triggers, such as negative thoughts, known as cognitive distortions.

Motivational interviewing (MI) – Motivational interviewing focuses on helping patients feel more confident about their ability to make healthy decisions and to recognize that they have innate abilities and resources to help them obtain life-long sobriety. This is a goal-oriented therapy that helps individuals overcome their fear of change.

Experiential therapy program – This program is designed to give participants an interactive, action-based way to overcome their addiction to drugs or alcohol.

Stress management – Part of the drug rehab and recovery process for professionals is learning how to manage stress in a productive manner, without relying on addictive substances. Recent studies have made it increasingly clear that mindfulness-based stress management can be helpful for preventing relapses and managing stress.
