Addiction Treatment Program for Professionals

The outpatient Professionals group at Solutions Treatment Center is a 17-week revolving theme program addressing core issues involved in substance use disorders. It is designed for those whose professional responsibilities affect the well being or livelihood of others and those who work in safety-sensitive or high profile positions, such as:  

  • Health care professionals
  • Legal professionals
  • Airline pilots
  • Business owners and executives
  • Clergy members
  • Professional athletes
  • Members of the entertainment industry

As such, we address the specialized needs of Professional Clients such as high stress, burn-out, legal and licensing issues, stigma, and relinquishing the caregiver role while in treatment. Enrollment may happen at any time during the cycle and begins with a full Bio-Psycho-Social assessment. Individual and family therapy sessions are available as needed. The group meets every Tuesday from 5:30-7:00 pm.
