Executive Rehab Centers: What to Look for

Executive Rehab Centers: What to Look for

Silver Ridge

According to the National Institutes of Health, 23.2 million Americans are addicted to drugs or alcohol, but only 10 percent get the help they need to recover. Some of the reasons why people avoid getting treatment include:

  • The cost of treatment
  • Fear that treatment won’t work
  • Fear of what others will think
  • Fear of losing their job or social standing
  • Fear of who they are without drugs or alcohol

Executives in particular may be unlikely to seek help for an addiction due to their position at work and in the community. They may fear losing clients, social standing or even their job if it’s revealed that they have a drug or alcohol problem. The stigma of addiction is powerful, and this can lead people to suffer in silence and continue trying on their own to quit or cut down.

Good intentions and willpower are rarely enough to end an addiction for good. Treatment is almost always needed due to the complex nature of addiction and the way it affects brain function and changes thought and behavior patterns. Addiction also causes problems in life, such as relationship issues and medical or mental health troubles, that can further perpetuate the drug or alcohol abuse.

The good news for CEOs, managers, and other professionals is that executive rehab centers offer a high level of privacy while enabling the executive to continue being a presence in the company.

Executive rehab centers tend to offer high-end, spa-like facilities with amenities like a gym, pool, tennis courts and putting greens. A business center, quality meals and private rooms with luxurious linens and housekeeping services give executive rehab centers a high-end atmosphere, while complementary therapies like massage and acupuncture promote relaxation and well-being.

While executive rehab centers can cost more than other treatment programs, cost alone doesn’t have a bearing on whether a program is the best available for treating addiction. High-quality addiction treatment is the most important thing an executive rehab center should offer, and the following tips will help you find an executive program that’s both luxurious and effective.


Look for Accredited Facilities

Accredited treatment programs are those that have been thoroughly investigated by a third-party accrediting body and found to meet the highest standards in the industry. Credentials to look for include CARF International and Joint Commission, which are the best-known, most comprehensive and most prestigious ones offered.


Ask for Documentation

A high-quality executive rehab center will have a proven track record of success, and they’ll be happy to show you the numbers to back up their claims. Ask for documentation about the program’s success rate.


Ask About the Treatment Approach

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration stresses that there is no single pathway to recovery, and a holistic program offers the best possible outcomes of treatment. A holistic program will offer individualized treatment plans that utilize a variety of both traditional and complementary therapies. This approach addresses your unique issues of body, mind and spirit and helps address multiple needs and challenges. A high-quality treatment program will use research-based therapies that have been proven effective for treating addiction.


Inquire About the Staff

The staff at a high-quality treatment program will be licensed and experienced. Staff members may enjoy additional certifications or accreditations that speak to their experience and quality of care. Quality staff will provide culturally competent treatment that addresses an individual’s unique needs.


Visit the Facilities and Consider Your Personal Preferences

If possible, take a tour of the treatment center before committing to attending. The facilities should be clean, secure and welcoming. Make sure the program can meet any special needs you have, such as dietary requirements or the need for accessibility.

Finding the right treatment program for you is essential for successful long-term recovery. Whether you choose an inpatient program or outpatient treatment, an executive rehab center will accommodate your need for privacy, luxury and high-quality treatment to help you end your addiction once and for all.
