Helping Boston Professionals & Families Overcome Addiction

Addiction Treatment in Boston

We understand the unique challenges that professionals in Boston face when seeking treatment for substance use disorder and co-occurring mental illnesses. Our addiction treatment programs cater to the needs of busy professionals with demanding schedules, providing them with the flexibility and support they need to recover. We ensure that our clients are matched with programming that allows them to heal while meeting obligations at home and work. Providence Treatment helps veterinarians, dentists, members of the clergy, and other professionals.

We also have standalone treatment tracks available for three specific careers:

Physicians have access to a wide variety of medications and are more likely to misuse prescription drugs than those in other fields. These rates rise for those who work in emergency medicine and highly specialized areas like anesthesiology.

Legal professionals are diagnosed with depression, anxiety, and alcoholism at higher rates than the general population. 21% of licensed, employed attorneys meet the clinical criteria for problem drinking. Deadlines, long hours, and mountains of paperwork all contribute to the prevalence of substance use disorder among lawyers.

Pilots deal with back-to-back flights and are responsible for hundreds of lives each and every day. The stress associated with this profession can push many pilots to attempt “self-medication” with marijuana, stimulants, or alcohol. This habit can have deadly consequences; 11% of pilots involved in aviation accidents tested positive for drug use.

No matter which field you work in, Providence can help. Our Boston drug rehab programs are personalized to the needs of executives, licensed professionals, and everyone in between. If you have lost your credentials due to substance use and need rehabilitation, our center is your destination. We offer qualified outpatient care that can meet the standards of governing bodies throughout Massachusetts.

Substance Use Disorder

Substance use disorder is the clinical term for addiction. In recent years, this issue has become more widespread among Boston professionals. Experts estimate that 11.3% of residents in the Boston metropolitan area are currently struggling with substance use disorder. Alcohol and heroin are the major substances of concern in our city – research shows that 25% of residents report binge drinking, and the rate of heroin overdoses increased by 76% in a two-year span.
Alcoholism, prescription drug dependence, and heroin addiction are among the most common conditions we treat at our practice. We also offer support for those diagnosed with dependencies on cocaine (powder or crack), amphetamines, cannabis, benzodiazepines, and other substances. Our treatment options include detox coordination and three levels of outpatient care: partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, and standard outpatient treatment.

Co-Occurring Conditions

Addiction rarely develops on its own. Providence Treatment offers high-quality behavioral health care for those struggling with co-occurring conditions. These instances of “dual diagnosis” require swift, simultaneous treatment. When a patient presents with addiction and a mental health condition, we take immediate steps to resolve both disorders. We offer therapeutic intervention and medication management services for:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Sleep disorders
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

By combining psychiatric support with innovative treatment protocols like eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), our Boston drug rehab is able to help men, women, and their families to recover from co-occurring disorders.
