Drug and Alcohol Treatment Programs

Drug Treatment for Professionals

Drug Rehab Programs for Professionals and Executives

Addiction does not adhere to demographics. Anyone, regardless of personal background, family, or profession, can face severe addiction issues without the help of comprehensive treatment. Drug and alcohol use disorders do not see economic standing, education, religion, race, or age. To find specialized drug addiction treatment for professionals in San Fernando Valley, contact SoberMind Recovery Center today.

What are the Benefits of Professional Rehab Programs?

Programs offering addiction treatment for professionals provide many benefits and treatment services designed explicitly around the treatment needs of working professionals who need help to overcome addiction. Most Southern California professional rehab programs include luxury features and unique amenities not typically included in traditional rehab programs.

Business amenities

Professional rehab programs allow access to necessary business amenities generally not allowed in traditional rehab programs. A few examples include those benefits listed above, such as access to the internet, cell phone use, private workspaces, and meeting rooms to allow you to continue operating and managing your business. In the case of clients at a professional rehab program, these “extra” features are crucial as they allow the patient to continue operating their business while working towards achieving sobriety.

High-end services and a wide range of therapies

Professional rehab programs in Southern California offer high-end luxury services for their patients. Some examples include yoga, meditation classes, private trainers, gourmet chefs, and larger, more spacious private rooms.

Fewer patients

Treatment programs that cater to executives and working professionals generally have fewer patients, which allows for a lower staff-to-patient ratio. It is essential to mention that reduced patient enrollment usually comes at a higher cost than traditional rehab programs; however, it also allows for a more personalized treatment experience.

Privacy and confidentiality

Strict confidentiality is a requirement of all addiction treatment programs, whether traditional or professional rehab. The only people who know about your attendance at an addiction treatment program are you, the members of your treatment team, and anyone you choose to share treatment decisions with. Professional rehabs like SoberMind are often located in secluded areas or gated settings, which increases privacy and confidentiality.

Comprehensive detox and evidence-based therapies

Depending on the nature and severity of your addiction, detox may be the first step on your recovery journey. The only way to truly immerse yourself in your recovery is to start therapy free from the hold of drug or alcohol addiction. Detox allows you to clean your system of any remaining toxic substances. 


Detoxing from alcohol and drugs involves withdrawal which can include a wide range of complex and unpleasant symptoms. Also, withdrawing from some substances (including opioids and alcohol) can produce harmful and potentially fatal side effects. It is the potentially severe and unpredictable nature of withdrawal that underscores the importance of medically supported detox services in a professional rehab program. 

Addiction therapy

Once you have fully detoxed, the next step in addiction recovery is therapy. During addiction therapy, you will learn about addiction while developing the vital coping tools needed to manage relapse triggers after treatment is complete. Professional rehab programs in Southern California use a variety of evidence-based, proven therapy tools during therapy sessions, including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy, and motivational interviewing, among others. 

Dual diagnosis treatment

Having a dual diagnosis means simultaneously having symptoms of a mental health condition and substance use disorder. It is essential to address both your addiction and mental health during the same treatment program at a dual diagnosis treatment center like SoberMind to ensure the highest opportunity for successful recovery. 

Treatment providers at a rehab for professionals specializing in dual diagnosis treatment will work with you to develop a program that identifies and addresses the underlying mental health conditions that may have contributed to harmful coping behaviors like drug and alcohol use. A dual diagnosis treatment program can help you better understand the impacts of self-medication while teaching you safer and more effective coping strategies to use when facing similar future triggers.

Professionals and Substance Abuse

Drug and alcohol addiction can affect anyone, regardless of their profession, economic standing, or education level. High-level corporate professionals and executives are typically the last people you might think of when you think of someone with a substance use disorder. There is a common belief that “these people have it all,” so why would they need to turn to coping tools like drugs or alcohol? For some professionals, the answer may be stress. 

One of the most common factors leading to addiction is using substances to cope with other problems. People may use drugs or alcohol to cope with mental health, environmental factors, family issues, and stress. Many executives are under significant pressure at work (and, in some cases, in their personal lives), but they lack the healthy coping strategies necessary to manage stressors in a healthy way. Therefore, substances often enter their lives, and it can quickly become difficult, if not impossible, to stop using or drinking. Other reasons may include financial capability, mental illness, physical injury, and peer influence. 

Statistics from studies on addiction and income show that Americans with a college education who fall into an upper-income bracket are more likely to drink alcohol than other Americans. In fact, 78% of those who earn more than $75,000 annually struggle with problem drinking, whereas only 45% with an income lower than $30,000 share the same difficulty. A 2017 article published in Development and Psychopathology shows that young white-collar workers are up to three times higher risk of developing a substance use disorder compared to adults of the same age in lower-income professions.

Can You Work While in Rehab?

Professional and executive rehabs provide clients who are working professionals with a way to seek and receive drug or alcohol addiction treatment while staying connected to their business and family obligations. Many professional rehab programs provide amenities that are not typically incorporated into traditional rehab programs.

Professional rehabs offer their clients access to many of the vital business amenities that working professionals would need to continue with their daily business operations and obligations. Examples include internet access, private workspaces, meeting rooms, and personal cellular phones.

For amenities that fit your needs while in treatment, contact a drug and alcohol rehab center in the San Fernando Valley, like SoberMind Recovery Center.
