Alcohol addiction and abuse affects every aspect of a person’s life. No matter how hard you try to keep it under control, it eventually impacts your family, your friends and your work. Successful businessmen, businesswomen and high-level executives are not immune to the devastating effects that an alcohol problem can have on their career. On the contrary; the more successful you are, the more you have to lose.
Don’t let a problem with alcohol ruin the career you’ve worked so hard to achieve. An executive alcohol treatment center can provide the confidential and effective alcohol treatment you need to get your life — and your career — back on track.
Executive Alcohol Treatment: Why You Need It
Professional businesspeople lead a stressful life, which often leads to poor eating and sleeping habits, exhaustion, anxiety — and the excuse that you need a drink to unwind and/or reward yourself at the end of the day. This cycle can quickly spiral out of control as you find yourself depending on alcohol to get you through your hectic life.
Ask yourself the following questions:
* Have you ever been late or missed work because of your drinking?
* Have your boss or employees asked you questions about your drinking?
* Do you keep alcohol in your desk or in your car?
* Has your work performance suffered after a night of heavy drinking?
* Do you find yourself chewing gum or using mouthwash to hide the smell of alcohol on your breath?
* Are you unable to unwind or relax without a drink?
* Do you need a drink before a meeting or other speaking engagement in order to boost your confidence?
* Do you feel guilty about your drinking?
* Do you ever feel the need to cut back on your drinking?
* Do you drink to numb feelings of depression or anxiety?
* Has a DUI or other drinking-related problem threatened your job?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are at risk and could benefit from an alcohol treatment program.
Executive Alcohol Treatment: What to Expect
Many busy professionals resist alcohol treatment because they believe they can’t afford to miss time off from work. But the real question is: Can you really afford not to get treatment? You’ve probably noticed that the more time goes by, the harder it is to control your drinking and the negative effects it has on your life. Don’t let it destroy your life any longer.
There are many types of executive alcohol treatment centers with many different types of treatment programs. Some alcohol programs, such as outpatient treatment, allow you to continue living a fairly normal routine of going to work. This is a good choice for individuals in the early stages of alcohol addiction. But if you’ve tried treatment unsuccessfully before or are in the more serious stages of alcohol addiction, inpatient (or residential) alcohol treatment is the best choice.
At the beginning of an inpatient treatment program, you’ll receive medically-assisted detox to help alleviate withdrawal symptoms and rid your body of all residual toxins left behind by your alcohol abuse. After detox, your day will be filled with activities such as educational workshops, individual therapy sessions, group therapy/counseling, holistic treatments and 12-step meetings. The main benefit of residential alcohol treatment is that it provides a temporary escape from the daily stresses and responsibilities of work, home, family and other relationships so you can solely focus on recovery.
