Drug & Alcohol Rehab Centers for Medical and Legal Professionals in Georgia

Among the many different drug and alcohol treatment programs operating within the state of Georgia, there are some private residential facilities that can specifically treat legal and medical professionals struggling with addiction. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration website do not provide a specific directory for these types of services but does offer extensive listings for all available drug and alcohol treatment resources operating within the state of Georgia. Drug treatment for legal and medical professionals is a very specific approach to help people working within these professions. Typically, this will be a residential center, where a patient can stay during his/her treatment, but some clients will opt for an outpatient program to help them.

How is the process of returning to work handled?

Each drug and alcohol treatment center normally has people working there who are familiar in the field, meaning they may have worked within the medical or legal field and work to help struggling addicts. Because they are familiar with the procedures and disciplinary actions, they can help clients develop a return to work assessment and preparation plan. During this re-entry plan, some safe or fit to practice issues will be discussed, along with relapse prevention and further therapy if needed. The transition back to work is an important step, and each patient should take every step to ensure it is done properly and effectively.
