In 2013, The Journal of Addiction Medicine stated that approximately 69% of Physicians have abused prescription medicine to relieve stress and physical and emotional pain. Currently, around 15% of Physicians are addicted to drugs. It has always been human nature for those in distress to search for and reach for relief that is close to hand. Physicians have a stressful career and many times lack personal boundaries when it comes to self-care. Recently, Heath Services stated, Physicians who seek out professional treatment at a dual-diagnosis facility often succeed at a rate of 70-80% of marinating sobriety. The Professionals Program at The Beach House Treatment Center is designed specifically for success of each patient who enters.
There are many reasons why a Professional won’t seek treatment. A few of these are fear, shame and guilt. Professionals are held to a high standard of ethics. When drug/alcohol addiction presents, the professional can feel hopeless and not know where to turn to ask for help. Others, who have a successful career, may think that they will be able to manage the addiction of their own, but the majority find out this is nearly impossible and usually find themselves in trouble with their governing board. No matter where you are in the process, we are here to help. We can work with your employer and governing board to help find solutions that will help you regain your career and your life.
