Substance Abuse Treatment for Doctors

The Silent Crisis in Healthcare

An estimated 10-15% of healthcare professionals will develop a substance addiction at some point in their careers, a rate that mirrors the general population. Medical professionals have unique access to prescription medications, leading to increased cases of opioid, benzodiazepine, and amphetamine misuse. Illicit drug use, including cocaine and designer drugs, is also prevalent, as some doctors seek these substances as a means to cope with high-pressure environments.

When doctors encounter peers who are in similar circumstances, a profound sense of relief and understanding emerges. This shared empathy underscores that doctors need and deserve places where they can rediscover their equilibrium and strength with other doctors.

A Tailored Approach to Recovery

The Practice offers a unique and tailored approach to address the intricacies of doctors battling SUD:

Specialized Care: Treatment is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Understanding the specialized pressures and challenges doctors face, our approach focuses on the specific triggers and stressors unique to the medical profession.

Limited Cohort: Our program is intentionally limited to eight doctors at a time. This ensures individualized attention, facilitating deeper and more meaningful therapeutic interactions.

Healing Amongst Peers: Being treated alongside fellow doctors creates a supportive environment of shared experiences. This camaraderie fosters a sense of belonging and understanding that is pivotal for recovery. 

Evidence-based Treatment: Leveraging proven methodologies, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and other evidence-based practices, our treatments are complemented by holistic therapies, ensuring a comprehensive healing journey.
