Executives and high-powered career professionals who find they needing drug rehab often have specific needs, requirements and concerns. Professionals in demanding career positions tend to be high-functioning, and often have been maintaining their image at work in spite of their drug or alcohol abuse. Understandably, many people in these positions wish to keep their attendance of a drug or alcohol rehab program under wraps, fearing backlash at work or damage done to their reputation or career.
Another important concern for many of these people is being able to maintain their schedule while in rehab-it can be nearly impossible for executives or CEO’s to take off 30 days or more of work. Many individuals in executive positions actually become addicted to their work, or are “workaholics,” which is why they have the success that they do.
However, this can be emotionally and mentally unhealthy. Men and women in these high performance careers often turn to alcohol or drugs to ease work anxiety or to attempt to relax after a stressful day or some choose to use stimulants to enhance their performance on the job.
Treatment centers like Passages Malibu are very understanding of this situation and cater to executives and professionals. We offer a resort-style atmosphere and consider privacy and confidentiality to be top priorities for our clients.
We also allow clients to have full unrestricted access to their cell phones and computers, which is very important for people in the business world. Our therapists are experienced in working with these types of individuals who operate under extreme pressure, and they can help them learn how to handle their careers without turning to alcohol or drugs for relief. Our therapists help clients realize their underlying emotional issues that may be causing them to abuse alcohol or drugs to manage work stress.
