Drug and Alcohol Rehab for Attorneys and Legal Professionals

Addiction Treatment Center in Orange County, California

Attorneys can be affected by substance abuse just like anyone else. Long hours, deadlines, and stressful case loads often put them at higher risk for addiction. Drug rehab programs for attorneys at Dana Point Rehab Campus focus on helping these individuals effectively manage stress and maintain successful careers without having to rely on drugs and alcohol. Here’s a look at why attorneys abuse drugs and alcohol, and where to find a drug rehab center that develops personalized treatment plans for these business professionals.

Why Do Attorneys Abuse Drugs and Alcohol?

Attorneys are often exposed and subjected to a number of risk factors for substance abuse and addiction throughout their education and careers. Stress, law school, working long hours, and attending professional events where alcohol is accessible are all substance abuse risk factors for attorneys. Mental health disorders such as depression and anxiety are also major risk factors, as is secondary traumatic stress, which can affect attorneys who are required to learn disturbing details about their clients’ traumatic experiences.

According to the Journal of Addiction Medicine, an estimated 20.6 percent of attorneys suffer from hazardous and harmful drinking and alcohol dependence. It’s also estimated that 28 percent, 23 percent, and 19 percent of attorneys suffer from significant levels of depression, stress, and anxiety, respectively. In regard to drug abuse, stimulants are the most commonly abused substance among attorneys (74.1 percent), followed by sedatives (51.3 percent), marijuana (31 percent), and opioids (21.6 percent). Another report published by the state of Minnesota states that 27 percent of attorney discipline cases in the U.S. involve alcohol abuse and estimates that around 60 percent of attorneys who have malpractice suits filed against them suffer from substance abuse.

Reasons Attorneys May Avoid Drug Rehab Treatment

Many attorneys with substance use disorders continue managing their careers and families while suffering from addiction in silence and avoiding drug rehab treatment. Some may fail to recognize they have a problem, while others may tend to avoid drug rehab, citing reasons such as shame, embarrassment, and confidentiality concerns. These concerns are completely valid and normal, and they can be fully addressed by drug rehab centers that offer personalized treatment programs for attorneys.

What Addiction Treatments Are Available for Attorneys?

Addiction treatment programs for attorneys at Dana Point Rehab Campus are customized to each law professional that enters our program. These programs offer a therapist familiar with the type of stressful environment and triggers that many attorneys face.  Our programs can be customized to allow legal professionals to maintain their careers and physical health while in recovery. For instance, Dana Point Rehab Campus offers access to private conference rooms with internet and phones, as well as fitness centers, swimming pools, and other recreational activities for those who wish to continue staying active.

All treatment programs for attorneys are personalized for the individual and include detox and behavioral therapies that make up a comprehensive inpatient residential rehab program. Medical detox helps patients safely withdraw from drugs and alcohol while reducing the risk of complications and minimizing uncomfortable symptoms such as insomnia, nausea, and muscle pain. Behavioral therapies take place in individual and group sessions, and focus on helping attorneys change harmful behaviors and views surrounding drug and alcohol use.

Specialized addiction treatment programs for attorneys also include stress management training, dual diagnosis therapy for those with mental health disorders, and cognitive-behavioral therapy. Attorneys can learn important health and lifestyle skills that allow them to manage stress and other triggers effectively without resorting to drug and alcohol use. Some drug rehab centers even have support groups exclusive to attorneys, which allows patients in this profession to bond with like-minded peers and share common struggles as they relate to substance abuse and being a lawyer.
