We treat high-functioning adults with busy schedules and demanding careers, including executives, professionals, business owners, full-time parents, and others. Among the many clients we’ve treated over the course of several decades, not a single one has said they ever expected to end up having a problem with alcohol or drugs that would eventually lead them to seek professional help. Not surprisingly, people that have succeeded in other areas of their life through determination, perseverance, and self-control feel exasperated when faced with the realization that their alcohol and/or other drug use has gotten a bit out of hand.
When considering their options, many high-functioning individuals are turned off by the idea of going to public AA meetings, leaving their home and job to go to an addiction rehab facility for several weeks, or attending group sessions at a local outpatient clinic sitting in a room with people half their age. They want assistance that is private, discreet, individually-tailored, and respectful of their time and intelligence. They want treatment that is evidence-based and scientifically grounded, not driven by a dogmatic belief system. Most of all, they do not want to be labeled as “addicts” or “alcoholics” or told that there is one and only one pathway to successful recovery for everyone – namely, the 12-step program of AA. What’s more, they want to be treated by highly trained, credentialed, and experienced clinicians who are experts in the field– not paraprofessionals who too often rely on their own history of personal struggles with addiction as the basis for telling others what to do. And, it almost goes without saying that these clients want assurance that their privacy and confidentiality will be respected without fail.
