Professionals Drug Rehab
Our drug rehab for professionals provides exceptional, evidence-based addiction treatment for licensed professionals such as physicians, airline pilots and attorneys as well as entrepreneurs, executives and motivated adults who seek comprehensive, individualized treatment.
Levels of Care
We offer a full continuum of care so that your treatment experience is seamless:
Drug and Alcohol Detox – If you require drug or alcohol detox, we offer state-of-the-art detox facilities at our Promises West Los Angeles and Malibu locations. Our medical team provides round-the-clock care, drawing on the latest research-backed medications to ease withdrawal symptoms as needed. Once you’ve completed detox, you’ll begin our Santa Monica treatment program.
Evaluation and Assessment – Intensive Diagnostic Evaluations (IDEs) are conducted with a team approach. This three-day multidisciplinary evaluation is typically required by professional health programs and boards but can also be valuable for any client. Intensive diagnostic evaluations help determine if and what type of substance use and/or mental health disorders exists and the best treatment approach given the diagnoses. Learn more about our IDEs.
Inpatient Treatment – During the initial phase of our professionals addiction treatment program, you’ll learn and practice essential recovery skills and build a strong commitment to abstinence. The second phase of treatment is designed to enhance the quality of recovery. In addition to continuing profession-specific groups and activities, you may participate in volunteer opportunities with local organizations. You’ll also enjoy more independence such as driving your own vehicle, more personal time, and attending recovery meetings of your choice.
Outpatient Treatment – Our outpatient program meets three mornings a week and builds on recovery skills learned in residential drug rehab. It’s ideal for clients transitioning out of Promises inpatient addiction treatment or people who don’t require a higher level of care. You’ll receive exceptional treatment without sacrificing work, school or other commitments as you integrate back into everyday life. Within a supportive, group format, our specialists help you overcome interpersonal, situational, social and psychological barriers to recovery.
What to Expect
Drawing on decades of experience and research, treatment includes:
Multidisciplinary Evaluations – We use validated diagnostic criteria to provide you highly accurate and useful assessments. Our clinical team conducts thorough medical and psychological exams to confirm or revise previous diagnoses and tailor a treatment plan specific to your needs.
Client-Oriented Treatment – With regular individual counseling sessions, small groups with peers, a variety of therapies and a high staff-to-client ratio, treatment is flexible, personalized and relevant to your issues and life experiences.
Collaboration With State Boards – We work with state professional health programs (PHPs) and regulatory boards (e.g., state medical boards, pharmacy boards and dental boards as well as state bar associations) to fulfill required treatment guidelines.
Treatment Alongside Peers – Our treatment milieu is comprised of adults from a variety of professions. You’ll engage in profession-specific groups with peers in your field or related fields. This helps you feel comfortable sharing your struggles and also helps you relate to and learn from others who’ve been through similar challenges.
Specialized Services – We have the expertise to address a range of complex addiction and mental health issues. If needed, we partner with providers in the community to offer you highly specialized services. Some of the specific issues we can treat include painkiller addiction, pain management, sex and intimacy disorders and trauma, among others.
12 Steps and 12-Step Alternatives – We offer both 12-step involvement and 12-step alternatives for those who don’t relate to 12-step principles.
Skilled Clinicians – Our team is comprised of highly seasoned addiction specialists who know how to work effectively and collaboratively with you, your referents and your family.
Treatment Approach Rooted in Success
Over the past three decades, an exceptional system of care has emerged in the U.S. to address the needs of professionals suffering from addictions and co-occurring disorders. This system is composed of specialized evaluation and treatment programs that work in concert with regulatory boards and professional monitoring agencies. This system of care and ongoing monitoring has achieved a remarkable record of documented success. A national study of professionals treated and managed under this system reported fewer relapses (less than 3% relapse rate per year) and preservation of careers (96% successfully returned to work). Our professionals program is modeled after this approach to provide you exceptional care and optimize your long-term recovery.
