Rehab for Impaired Professionals

Many may believe that high paid professionals, such as doctors or lawyers, are above making mistakes, being vulnerable, or facing such obstacles like addiction. However, substance and alcohol abuse can impact anyone, regardless of one’s vocational accomplishments. Those with such achievements may even feel an additional pressure to live up to a standard set by their industry, the community, society, or even themselves.

River Oaks Treatment Center has a program created and tailored just for impaired professionals. The program welcomes individuals who work in a licensed professional position.

Eligible candidates for the program include, but aren’t necessarily limited to:

  • Pharmacists.
  • Social workers.
  • Nurse practitioners.
  • Pilots.
  • Physician assistants.
  • Doctors.
  • Nurses.
  • Lawyers.

River Oaks is a treatment facility that is part of the American Addiction Centers’ (AAC) family. And AAC is a nationwide leader in addiction treatment. Individuals can trust that they will be receiving exceptional care at any one of our facilities, regardless of which rehab center across the United States is chosen. And with our Impaired Professionals Program, licensed professionals can trust that River Oaks delivers on its commitment. In the end, you want a program that works for you and is a solid fit for your specific needs.

Located in the beautiful Sunshine State, individuals who attend rehab at River Oaks not only benefit from licensed physicians, certified staff members, and an accredited facility, but they get the opportunity to be in a location that’s relaxing enough to let them focus on sobriety.

River Oaks also provides telehealth addiction treatment, virtual support meetings for post-treatment, family therapy, and co-occurring disorder treatment (e.g., depression).

In addition to the Impaired Professionals Program, River Oaks also offers a specialized program for veterans/first responders, as well as the LGBTQ+ community that may be battling an alcohol or substance use disorder.

Our outcome-based treatment provides:

  • Nutrition assessments.
  • Alternative treatments like yoga.
  • Spirituality groups.
  • Comprehensive evaluations upon admission.
  • Physician-led groups.
  • PRN/IPN/FLA assistance.
  • Psychological testing.
  • Focused treatment plans.
  • Aftercare development.

Individuals faced with a demanding career have worked a number of years to achieve what they have. They received the education, the degrees, in some cases, certifications and licenses, to practice their profession. And as well as many of them are paid for providing such services, they are equally granted the responsibility of providing a service that so many need. Many of these professionals may struggle with maintaining a certain lifestyle based upon their income in order to make sure their families are taken care of. Some, such as pilots, physicians, or nurses, literally hold the lives of others in their hands.

The pressure of being an upstanding individual, a pillar of the community, a mentor, and a leader while maintaining their relationships, friendships, and families may be daunting for many. This pressure may have caused some to turn to substances as a solution. Substance or alcohol abuse may feel like the only option. But River Oaks invites you to our facility so that you aren’t having to battle your addiction on your own or in silence. We are here to help.
