Your career is important to you. And as a business executive or someone working a high-profile white-collar job, there’s a lot riding on your work performance. You might be responsible for the operations of your organization or you may have an entire team to direct and manage.
Has all that daily stress and pressure burned you out to the point where you drink or use drugs to get through the work day? At The Raleigh House, we have over 10 years of experience helping executives and business professionals recover from addiction and mental health conditions triggered by your work environment.
In a society that still hasn’t fully embraced work life balance, it’s easy to fall into the mindset that you live to work. But in order to overcome addiction and dual diagnosis disorders, you need to accept that your career isn’t the end-all-be-all.
When you come to The Raleigh House for treatment, our goal is to help you change that mindset and work to live instead of the other way around. And it all begins with our continuum of care approach that incorporates both evidence-based and holistic therapies.
Our continuum of care, or “gold standard” for addiction treatment, begins with detox. You’ll come to our wellness lodge, The Ranch, that’s just outside of Denver, and work with an experienced team that can help you get the drugs out of your system. You’ll be in a secure, private environment the entire time and you’ll be treated with respect and dignity.
After detox, you’ll stay at The Ranch for our residential treatment program. This is where we’ll get to the bottom of your addiction, process and adjust any workaholic tendencies and develop healthier ways to cope with stress and triggers.
During your time in our residential treatment program, you’ll experience the following:
During these scheduled times throughout the day, you’ll meet with a Master’s-level clinician and other staff members to work through your addiction and mental health struggles.
Part of recovery at The Raleigh House focuses on strengthening your body and mind with activities like yoga, rock climbing, equine therapy, art therapy and much more. These holistic activities give you other ways to process your thoughts and feelings and heal from the damage substance abuse and work stress have caused.
Your body and mind are intricately connected and need proper nutrition to function normally and recover from substance abuse. During treatment, you’ll receive a five-star dining experience where our Executive Chef will make you fresh, pro-recovery meals designed to help heal your body and mind.
Once you’ve completed residential treatment, the next step in our continuum of care approach is our outpatient treatment program in Denver. You’ll participate in treatment five days a week to continue practicing the recovery techniques you learned in residential treatment. Outpatient treatment is where you’ll slowly regain your independence and begin incorporating your recovery back into everyday life.
Ultimately, our goal is to help you recover from addiction and find lasting recovery. But there are additional outcomes we focus on during treatment to help you maintain sobriety beyond your time in rehab:
Burnout is now considered an “occupational phenomenon” and syndrome by the World Health Organization. A good way to avoid or manage burnout is through work life balance. In treatment, you’ll learn the importance of self-care and how to set boundaries for yourself to maintain a healthy, fulfilling life.
You need to understand your triggers with addiction and over-working. During your time at The Raleigh House, you’ll develop greater self-awareness to identify stress, anxiety and other negative thoughts and feelings when they arise at work. This skill can help you manage cravings and maintain better work life balance.
We know how important your career is to you and we want you to return to work better than ever. During treatment, you’ll explore the reasons why your job drove you to substance abuse. You’ll then develop healthy coping skills and techniques to ensure you keep your well-being top of mind throughout your career.
You want to find long-term recovery in addiction treatment, not relapse quickly after leaving rehab. At The Raleigh House, we work with you to develop a relapse prevention plan geared towards own unique triggers and cravings.
Have both your career and personal life suffered because of substance abuse? The Raleigh House has the experience and resources to help you overcome addiction and establish a fulfilling life that doesn’t revolve around your job.
