Addictions Treatment for Healthcare Professionals

Healthcare professionals are experiencing higher levels of stress than ever before. Doctors, nurses, mental health professionals, and others in the helping profession often experience secondary or tertiary trauma that has long-term effects on mental health and well-being. Among other factors, these extreme stressors can lead to struggles with drug or alcohol addiction. When you’re looking for help navigating and receiving treatment for addiction, you can trust the professionals at Palmetto Addiction Recovery Center.

You’re Not Alone

Healthcare professionals sometimes experience fear and anxiety that seeking help for addiction will have negative effects on their careers. That fear and anxiety can lead to a tendency to cover up your own struggles or believe that you have to carry this burden alone. But addiction recovery is not a solo project – and you’re not alone in struggling with drug or alcohol addiction. In fact, some healthcare professionals are up to 5 times more likely to experience addiction than the general population. If you’re among the many healthcare professionals whose stress, trauma, and other factors have manifested an addiction – we’re here to help you recover.

Addiction Treatment for Healthcare Professionals

Generally speaking, anyone seeking addiction treatment has access to inpatient residential programs and outpatient treatment programs. Which program is right for you will depend on your preference and ability to attend inpatient or outpatient treatment and any requirements you may have to meet in your addiction recovery program. Regardless of whether you receive inpatient or outpatient treatment for addiction recovery, your treatment should be informed by licensed mental health and addiction counseling professionals. At Palmetto Recovery Center, all of our programming is designed and led by medical professionals who specialize in addiction treatment and recovery – and we have a specialized program for healthcare professionals.

Our addiction treatment program for healthcare professionals is on-site and residential. We ensure a discreet and seamless experience, offering privacy and confidentiality within the context of high-quality, individualized, and effective recovery care. Our residential facilities are modern and comfortable with updated amenities and full-time access to our expert professional staff. We do not put a minimum or maximum time limit on our clients’ stays – instead, the length of stay is based on each client’s progress through treatment. Our programs cover a range of substance and process addictions, including:

  • Alcohol
  • Opioids
  • Stimulants
  • Prescription Drugs
  • Gambling

What About My Licensure and Professional Responsibilities?

We specialize in treating professionals who are required by licensing and accrediting organizations to remain clean and sober to maintain their credentials. We also specialize in collaborating with accrediting boards to prevent a lapse in licensure. We are familiar with and provide the type of treatment necessary to meet the high standards of these organizations, and we provide proof of treatment for all successful graduates of our professional’s program. We serve as advocates for our professional clients throughout the process of treatment and as they return to work, ensuring a seamless transition back to independent life and life-long sobriety. Our professional’s program has a high success rate and our clients return to the workforce fully committed to their sobriety and with minimal interruptions.
