Alcohol Treatment for Professionals at Crossroads Maine
Our addiction treatment programs help professionals like you address substance use issues while assisting you in returning to work in your career. The very strengths professionals have, such as problem-solving, caretaking, perfectionism, can be stumbling blocks to addiction recovery. Workplace challenges that may impact recovery include:
- A culture of using alcohol or other drugs
- Access to narcotics
- Stressors that are specific to your occupation
- Work hours that negatively impact your work/life balance
- Expectations in your work environment
At Crossroads, a multidisciplinary team will work with you to understand your situation and determine your individualized treatment plan. Our intake team will conduct mental and medical assessments as well as take a thorough substance use history to decide which addiction treatment services will best fit your individual needs.
Keeping Your Job While Seeking Addiction Treatment
Many professionals suffering from addiction look to outpatient programs or those which do not require them to leave home or work to receive treatment. These programs can take place in community health centers, hospitals, and other locations. The woman attends treatment for a certain number of hours a few days of the week for several weeks or months.
While this arrangement may seem like the perfect fit for some, it may not provide the environment and structure necessary to help you overcome dependence and learn to manage your addiction. Substance abuse is a disease known that may lead to relapse. As a result, we ensure treatment is intense and focused, and outpatient programs do not always offer this intensity.
Some people may worry that they will lose their job while seeking addiction treatment. However, there are ways to keep your position and still get the support you need. For instance, many workplaces offer programs to ensure employees get the help they need for problems like substance abuse and mental health issues. Often, these programs are called Employee Assistance Programs (EAP). This program is confidential and provides treatment services or refers employees to treatment programs. EAPs help them heal while keeping their position secure.
If you are worried that you may lose your job because you need treatment, the Department of Labor’s Family and Medical Leave Act offers some protection. This law enables employees “to take unpaid, job-protected leave for specified family and medical reasons.” One of these reasons includes severe health conditions, such as addiction, which keep a person from being able to perform their job duties.
