The Premier Professional Rehab In Ohio

Alcohol and drug addictions are now permeating the workforce. A 2020 study by Behavioral Health Impact Update indicates a significant increase, with 49% of American workers struggling with substance use issues. Considering these startling statistics, the challenge is substantial and necessitates a unique and tailored treatment approach.

The Professional Addiction Treatment Program at The Ridge Ohio, a Joint Commission accredited facility, is specifically designed to meet the high standards of clinical excellence recognized by professional boards, monitoring agencies, and licensing associations.

Dr. Marc Whitsett, A Board Certified Medical Director for The Ridge, explains why the Professionals Program is exceptional for treatment centers:

“One of my favorite things about The Ridge Ohio is The Ridge Professionals Program. I think to understand the Professionals Program, first, you have to understand its origin. Dr. Jeff Stuckert, our founder and an ER doctor, was very successful but also an alcoholic. He had gone into treatment at a hospital in-patient program where he said he felt very much like a number. When he got into recovery, he really wanted to create an environment for professionals like him to receive truly individualized care. That’s how The Ridge Ohio and The Ridge Professionals Program was started.”

Comprehensive Addiction Treatment for Professionals in Ohio

Entering an addiction treatment center as an adult professional demands a distinctive approach. The complexity of treating addiction in this specific demographic stems from the convergence of professional responsibilities, personal identity, and high-stakes careers.

At The Ridge Ohio, we understand professionals working in demanding fields such as business, law, or healthcare have invested years in education, training, and hard work to reach their current positions. These “jobs” are more than a means of financial sustenance; they are a vocation, a deeply ingrained part of their identity, and often a lifelong calling. The professional world is not only where employees earn an income; the workplace is where they excel, contribute to society, and find fulfillment.

Dr. Dan Jolivet, Workplace Possibilities practice consultant at The Standard, states, “When an employee is living with a substance-use issue, oftentimes a job is something positive to hold onto, and one of the strongest sources of support and encouragement.” 

Given this, a one-size-fits-all approach to addiction treatment falls short of addressing the unique needs of adult professionals. The personalized, holistic methods we use at our rehab for professionals not only address addiction but also focus on improving the delicate balance between work and personal spheres. Treatment teams collaborate with relevant professional organizations to ensure compliance with relevant regulations and to safeguard your career and reputation. We recognize that recovery cannot be isolated from professional identity; it is integral to who you are and your personal journey.

Treatment Philosophy And Approach For Professionals

Addiction is a disease that responds positively to evidence-based treatment, lifestyle changes, education, and, in some cases, medication. In the field of addiction treatment, experienced providers no longer perceive addiction as a character flaw, a moral failing, or a consequence of a lack of willpower. It is viewed similarly to other chronic conditions such as hypertension or diabetes.

“The foundation of our professional program is the fact that addiction is a chronic medical condition that responds well to appropriate treatment.”

The first step in recovery at our professional rehab involves a comprehensive biopsychosocial assessment conducted by an interdisciplinary team of two addictionologists, an internist, a psychiatrist, and licensed counselors. This treatment team devotes time to understanding your personal experiences, addiction history, medical background, and treatment objectives. Based on this assessment, the team collaborates with you to develop a tailored treatment plan encompassing diverse treatment modalities that harness your strengths and cater to your specific needs.

Treatment modalities

We employ evidence-based treatment modalities that have been rigorously tested and proven to contribute to lasting recovery. Some of the interventions your program may include are as follows:

    • Therapies:
    • Family Involvement:
      • Education on addiction
      • Repairing relationships
      • Healthy communication
      • Supporting your loved one’s recovery journey
    • Educational classes and workshops:
      • The science of addiction
      • Relapse management
      • Effective communication
      • Anger management
    • Complementary therapies:

At The Ridge Ohio, we understand that each individual is unique, and their journey to recovery is distinct. With your well-being in mind, we customize programs from a wide selection of therapies, including those mentioned above. If you find something isn’t the right fit, our dedicated therapists will collaborate with you to identify approaches that resonate with your specific needs.
