Choosing the best executive alcohol treatment

If you are a member of the C-suite who is also dealing with an addiction to alcohol, finding the right treatment center is essential.  Below is some information to help you find the best executive alcohol treatment center for your needs.

What is an Executive Alcohol Rehab Center?

An executive treatment center is an addiction treatment center that tailors its services to meet the unique needs of c-level executives, celebrities, politicians and other people who live life in the public eye. These facilities typically provide private, confidential treatment to clients in a resort-like environment. They also offer patients the resources they need to be able to keep in contact with the people who depend on them and continue meeting their professional obligations even during treatment.

Choosing the Right Treatment Center

As you consider different executive treatment centers, try to look for a facility that:

  • Offers customized treatment programs. - The best programs are those that are willing to customize their treatment programs to meet the needs of each individual patient.
  • Provides a comfortable environment. - The quality of the rooms, food and other amenities at treatment facilities varies. Be sure that the facility you select provides a satisfactory living environment.
  • Has a good reputation. - Before you choose any rehab facility, take some time to read reviews of the facility online. Look for reviews written by past patients, as well as neutral third parties.
  • Produces results. - To ensure that you have the best possible chance of recovery, try to choose a program with a high success rate. You can typically find information about success rates by browsing facilities' official websites or calling facilities directly. 

Other Considerations

Although the factors above are important, you must also consider certain practicalities when you choose an executive alcohol treatment center. For example, choosing a treatment center in a remote location may not be feasible if you need immediate access to your subordinates while you are in rehab. Likewise, if you would like for part of your expenses to be covered by your PPO insurance plan, you need a facility that is willing to accept payments from your insurer. Because some facilities require cash pay, this is something you should ask about before you enroll.
