Healthcare Professionals Program
Healing care, for those who heal others.
The addiction treatment that Bradford’s Healthcare Professionals Program provides is geared to physicians, nurses, dentists, pharmacists, veterinarians and other healthcare providers.
This program addresses the special demands and pressures placed on these professionals – which can cause stress, burnout, depression, and the abuse of alcohol and drugs. Because many healthcare providers have easy access to controlled substances, they face triggers and temptations that few people in other professions encounter.
The goal of the Healthcare Professionals Program is to help each patient recover, as well as to address any licensing issues and facilitate the patient’s return to professional practice.
We’ve provided treatment to doctors, nurses and other health professionals from more than 40 states across the country. We conduct more than 400 assessments for health professionals annually.
Upon admission, a comprehensive, multidisciplinary four-day evaluation begins. This period includes medically supervised detoxification, if needed, as well as an introduction to the treatment process.
Features and benefits:
- A team of specialists from relevant disciplines conducts a physical exam, lab tests, psychosocial and psychiatric assessments and more.
- This evaluation has proven extremely effective in diagnosing problems and developing an individualized treatment plan.
- The treatment team develops a plan and determines the suggested length of stay … then meets with the patient to review recommendations.
- Care for each patient includes guidance on returning to his or her professional area.
