When Healthcare Professionals Need Treatment

This entry was posted in Professional Interventionist and tagged on by .

docsSince addiction doesn’t discriminate, even people who work in the healthcare field can wind up becoming substance abusers. This includes doctors, nurses, therapists, and more.

While someone who has a current drug or alcohol problem shouldn’t continue to practice due to patient risk, they should be afforded the same chance at rehabilitation just like professionals in other fields.

Multiple treatment centers have impaired professionals programs that deal with problems directly associated with such a situation. It has been proven time and again that the more a rehab program can be tailored to an individual’s needs, the more successful it likely will be. The same is true for healthcare professionals.

Facilities that offer programs specializing in these types of clients typically include job-specific counseling and support groups for relapse prevention. Once a healthcare professional has regained sobriety and demonstrated stability they should be allowed to continue on with their work helping others.

We have had many years’ worth of experience in dealing with all types of interventions for professionals. If you need assistance in getting your loved one or co-worker into treatment, contact us today.

Mike Loverde

As a Certified Intervention Professional (CIP), member of NAATP, NAADAC, and accredited by the Pennsylvania Certification Board, Mike Loverde knows first-hand what it’s like to live life with addiction. By overcoming it, he had a calling to work with others who struggle with drug and alcohol addictions—the people who use and the families who feel helpless watching them decay.

With thousands of interventions across the United States done and many more to come, Loverde continues to own the intervention space, since 2005, by working with medical doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists and others who need expert assistance for their patients who need intervention. To further his impact on behavioral health and maximize intervention effectiveness, Loverde is near completion of a Masters in Addiction Studies (MHS) accreditation, as well as a Licensed Independent Substance Abuse Counselor (LISAC), and is committed to attaining the designation of a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC).
