The Journey Begins at Bradford

Drug and Alcohol Rehab for Aviation Professionals
Drug and Alcohol Rehab for Aviation Professionals It doesn't get more stressful than flying through the air at 575 mph, 35,000 above the ground. Whether a pilot, flight attendant, or ground crew member, aviation professionals are under pressure every day. Combine that with time zone changes, jet lag, disrupted sleep patterns, and the desire to take the edge off is a natural response. What happens when a drink or two to ease stress becomes five? Or when substances impair judgment, vision, and motor control? Social and financial consequences for sure, but in the aviation industry, they come with a far greater cost: ruined personal and business reputations, lost careers, and lives in jeopardy.
