Addiction Treatment For Healthcare, Legal, and Other Professionals
Addiction is particularly destructive for skilled and licensed professionals in public safety sensitive professions due to the demands and expectations in their work. This is especially true for executives, attorneys, physicians, dentists, pharmacists, airline pilots, counselors and other kinds of professionals.
Our professionals' program provides addiction treatment for healthcare, legal, and other professionals customized to the needs of each individual. Because of their training and education, professionals often develop similar coping styles and require specialized intervention and treatment methods. Our professionals' track addresses addiction as well as co-occurring mental health disorders as they relate to the challenges faced by this particular group.
Pavillon works closely with professional advocacy and monitoring organizations and collaborates with them to ensure successful recovery for each patient.
Evaluation & Treatment Approach:
Pavillon's multi-disciplinary team of addiction specialists, physicians, psychiatrist, clinical psychologists, and therapists conduct a detailed evaluation to determine the nature and extent of treatment and recovery needs. The clinical team evaluates the patient's physical, psychological and spiritual health.
This includes a comprehensive review of occupational and psychosocial history, family and relationship issues, psychological testing, neuro-cognitive screening and a complete medical exam.
The referring organization receives a diagnostic summary, which includes treatment recommendations and appropriate referrals. Additionally, the clinical team creates a plan tailored to the needs of each individual.
Our addiction treatment is appropriate for healthcare, legal, and other professionals and includes various components tailored to the specific needs of individuals in the professionals' program:
- 12-Step facilitation
- Cognitive and relapse prevention therapies
- Specialty groups
- Medical and/or psychiatric assessment and medication management
- Recovery focused educational groups
