As An Executive, How Can I Find The Time for Treatment and Recovery?

As A Judge, Where Can I Find Resources for Substance Abuse Concerns?

Between work meetings, project deadlines, never-ending emails and phone calls to make, it may seem nearly impossible to make time for recovery. After all, many executives have found themselves at the hand of substances to cope with unwanted side effects of mental illness, such as racing thoughts, fatigue, nervousness, and more. Unfortunately, this can lead to substance use disorders (SUDs), which further complicate a person’s ability to succeed in both their personal and professional lives. Thankfully, treatment is available for professionals, offering an environment of ultimate comfort, healing, and restoration with the ability to still maintain work-related pursuits.

A 2016 study published in the Journal of Occupational Health Psychology found several implications for why mental health is important for CEOs and executives, along with other leaders:

  • Their mental health is associated with their employees’ wellbeing
  • Problem drinking and cardiovascular health can become concerns of those who do not seek proper treatment, jeopardizing performance
  • Sleep deprivation can lead to less transformational leadership, with increased susceptibility to agitation and poor leader performance
  • When mental health or substance abuse problems are present, leaders may engage in abusive supervision

Treatment for professionals begins and ends with ultimate accommodation to promote your healing while ensuring that your leadership capabilities do not fade from your company’s endeavors. Executives spend countless hours ensuring the feasibility and implementation of plans, and it’s understandable that these business necessities should not be excluded just because treatment is sought. A professional treatment center will be able to provide you with the following:

  • Ultimate comfort, with high-quality linen and room presentation for optimal relaxation
  • Catered services, including healthy meals to provide you with all the nutrients and minerals you need to restore balance and well-being
  • Business-related spaces, such as computer access and conference rooms to conduct business as usual and not miss a beat
  • Services alongside treatment to promote the restoration of your mind, body, and spirit, such as massage therapy, acupuncture, yoga, meditation, and more

Recovery certainly takes time, but it’s well worth it. Living with a mental illness and/or substance abuse disorder can make everyday living challenging, let alone managing a business optimally. Rehabilitation can provide you with the time, space, and resources to get back on track while not dismissing the needs of your company.

If you haven’t already, speak with someone from a professional treatment center to learn more about programs to best suit your needs. Optimal recovery is possible, and you are not alone in your pursuit for happiness, health, and wellbeing.
