Drug and Alcohol Treatment for Doctors, Nurses and Other Health Care Professionals
The life-or-death situations that healthcare professionals often face can cause incredible long-term stress, and be physically and emotionally exhausting. Compound this with the easier access to prescriptions that doctors and nurses have, and it's clear why many dedicated health care professionals wind up falling victim to substance abuse. Once a healthcare professional develops a drug or alcohol problem, their performance suffers and they severely jeopardize not only their health, but that of the patients they serve.
Our healthcare professionals treatment program has become the leader of its kind because Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches understands the unique challenges faced by medical personnel. As a medical organization, we cannot only empathize with the often overwhelming workload and decision-making involved in working within this field, but we also offer cutting-edge addiction care and stress management to help healthcare workers resume successful careers and achieve balanced mental health.
