Executive Detox at Home Promoted Increased Confidentiality and Quality of Care
If you think that career status and financial success are preventative to acquiring an alcohol or drug dependency, think again. Addiction can enslave even the brightest minds, afflicting anyone no matter what their social strata. An individual who has been elevated to a highly influential position in their chosen career is most often a Type A personality, characterized as intensely driven and focused on achievement—sometimes at any cost. Couple that personality type with the high stress levels associated with a demanding career, and it isn’t at all surprising that the busy professional may come to depend on a substance to help them manage the intensity of their jobs.
Indeed, according to a study authored by Rajita Sinha, Ph.D. out of Yale University, stress plays a vital role in the development of an addiction. States Dr. Sinha, “There is substantial literature on the significant association between acute and chronic stress and the motivation to abuse addictive substances.” Dr. Sinha continues, “Many of the major theories of addiction also identify an important role of stress in addiction processes. These range from psychological models of addiction that view drug use and abuse as a coping strategy to deal with stress, to reduce tension, to self medicate, and to decrease withdrawal-related distress.”
What is an Executive Detox at Home?
When an addiction develops, the executive may desire treatment but concerns about their addiction problem being discovered may deter or delay treatment. Because of this potential barrier to receiving the care they need, executive detox at home provides the most discreet option to begin the treatment process. An at-home detox for the executive is designed with a laser focus on privacy for the detox and withdrawal process.
Executive detox at home is the same process one would expect at a luxury executive inpatient detox facility, except that it will take place in the comfort of his or her own home. Executive detox allows for the individual to continue to engage in work-related activities while discreetly undergoing the detox procedure.
What to Expect in an Executive Detox at Home?
The private detox nursing team that is assigned to the executive detox will be responsible for providing medical and emotional support during the detox and withdrawal phase of addiction recovery. Withdrawal symptoms will commence within a day of the last dose or drink, and will vary depending on the specific substance or substances involved, the severity of the addiction, the history of the addiction, and the overall health and age of the individual.
As the highly uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms begin, the detox team will administer medications to help mitigate the symptoms, under the supervision of a physician who is an addiction specialist. The medications will assist with nausea, diarrhea, muscle pain, anxiety, cravings, and insomnia. The executive detox will likely include additional holistic therapies to enhance relaxation and minimize stress. These therapies might include guided imagery, yoga, IV vitamin therapy, and massage therapy.
