Seeking Recovery When You’re a Working Professional
- First, remember that there are multiple ways to pursue addiction treatment. You may not have time for a full inpatient rehab program, but other options—such as partial hospitalization or intensive outpatient rehab—can be much more flexible, accommodating your busy schedule.
- Seek a recovery center that offers an executive rehab program. Executive rehabs are made with C-suite members in mind, and provide both an expedited timeline and a high degree of confidentiality.
- Speak with your admissions counselor about bringing your phone, computer, and/or tablet to rehab—which can help you stay connected to the outside world.
- Even after you complete your initial rehab, make sure you keep attending therapy and support group meetings as directed. These meetings are critical for ensuring you maintain your sobriety, and continue to thrive in your professional life.
