How Can Professionals Practice Self-Care?

How Can Professionals Practice Self-Care?

Part of being a professional is being able to advocate to others and give them instructions which better their lives. Pilots let flyers know when it’s best to be seated with their seat belt safely in tact. Pharmacists offer to guide clients on best practices for consuming their medications. Lawyers advise their clients on what to say and what not to say. The examples are exponential in the way that professionals offer guidance to their recipients across an array of industries.

Professionals are constantly helping other people by providing services which they have worked extremely hard to be able to provide. Professionals are changing lives and taking care of others, which can be exhausting and fatiguing. To cope with the stress of their careers and the stress of other areas or events in their lives, professionals turn to substance abuse. Eventually, their coping mechanisms stop working. Unfortunately, for professionals, there is nobody there telling them what they need to do to take care of themselves and better their lives- until they seek treatment. The Center for Professional Recovery offers a full continuum of care, diagnostic evaluations, and aftercare options to professionals in a range of fields. Built by professionals for professionals, our programs help professionals heal and teach them how to live their lives again.

Self-care is something that professionals, who give on a consistent basis, desperately need for themselves in their recovery. For professionals who come to recovery, drugs and alcohol have been self-care. Treatment teaches professionals new, healthy, sustainable ways to care for mind, body, and spirit. Professionals learn how to balance their diet with brain healthy foods, get regular exercise, incorporate mindfulness and meditation into their routines, and regularly exercise. By learning more about themselves, professionals learn how to take care of themselves, and support themselves in ways which feel good to them.

Some professionals like art. Some like golf. Some like spending quality time with family. Self-care is the set of practices which help to replenish a professional’s soul and reminds them of the importance of their sobriety. Self-care is the alternative to drugs and alcohol, the steady way of self-soothing and self-healing which rebuilds neural pathways, away from the repeated pattern of addiction.

The Center for Professional Recovery offers the Professional Treatment Program, designed specifically to address the unique needs of professionals, like first-responders. Our programs are designed to treat co-occurring disorders which might arise and restore first-responders in a way which allows them to return to work and continue taking care of their mental health.
