Struggling with an addiction is often stressful. This is a disease that takes over every aspect of your life. It affects not only your physical health but also your mental and psychological health. If it becomes serious enough, you find yourself neglecting other responsibilities as you’re obsessed with getting the next fix or drink. Eventually, this will affect your family and your work.
Using drugs or alcohol in the workplace comes with consequences ranging from serious to dire. Depending on your workplace, your addiction could result in low productivity and efficiency to negligence, and even accidents. All these put your job at risk as your employer could dismiss you based on your actions.
If you’re battling an addiction and would like to receive treatment while still keeping your job, help is available.
Flexible Outpatient Addiction Programs
At Findlay Recovery Center in Ohio, we provide a range of addiction treatment programs for those who want to keep their jobs. Our outpatient addiction programs are ideal for those who wish to keep working while still undergoing addiction treatment.
Unlike our drug addiction residential program or the alcohol addiction program, our outpatient programs give you the freedom and flexibility to still carry on with your daily life. You don’t have to reside at our treatment center in Ohio because you can go back home or to work once you’re done with your therapy sessions. This makes it easy for you to carry on with your job as normal without worrying about being let go for taking a long break to attend rehab.
With our outpatient programs, you have to attend your scheduled therapy sessions a few hours a day, 5 to 7 days a week. Before starting the treatment program, you’ll get to discuss your schedule and routine with one of our treatment counselors so they can assess your treatment needs. This way, they can design a program that caters to your unique recovery needs as well as your schedule. You then decide whether to attend rehab sessions during the day or evening, as your schedule permits.
Keep in mind that as flexible as they are, outpatient addiction programs aren’t meant for everyone. These programs work best if you have a mild addiction and no co-occurring mental health disorders. They are also ideal for those who are disciplined enough to attend all their therapy sessions while balancing the demands of life and work. It’s also a good idea to have a strong support system of friends and family who can support your treatment and recovery.
