Frontline, a confidential addiction recovery program for medical and behavioral health professionals
Are you a medical or behavioral health professional struggling with substance abuse? As you may routinely face high-stress and indeed traumatic situations, at times accompanied by sleep deprivation, fatigue and pain, drugs and alcohol could become ways to self-medicate and manage your emotions. You might find the use of alcohol and prescription pills (like painkillers) particularly problematic and troubling. This is not uncommon, and you are not alone. Help is available and recovery is within reach.
Whether you’re a physician, nurse, therapist, counselor, pharmacist, or any patient-facing medical or behavioral health professional struggling with drugs and alcohol, Recovery Centers of America knows how challenging this struggle can be and we are here to help. That’s why we created the Frontline program, a specialty inpatient addiction treatment program designed exclusively for your unique needs as a medical or behavioral health professional. Throughout every phase of your treatment, we understand the importance of your anonymity and are committed to protecting your privacy.
Healing together through proven addiction treatment
While in Frontline, with a program curriculum designed to span 3-4 weeks, you will be joined by a community of your professional peers, recovering alongside fellow individuals who share a similar life and work experience. United by your shared goals of working through past personal and professional problems, to live a life of lasting recovery, you will be supported every step of the way by expert, caring addiction treatment professionals. Through the use of specialized clinical workbooks, and under the care of an assigned therapist in both individual and group sessions, the many topics covered include:
- Fatigue and burnout
- Coping with specific stressors of field, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic
- High-risk work situations
- Managing medications for others
- Coping with grief and loss
- Occupationally high-risk situations
- Healthy prioritization of your own self-care
- Forms of trauma—long- and short-term, vicarious/secondary, in work and in life itself
Through Frontline, you will be treated with a variety of evidence-based clinical approaches, such as:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) employs a battery of techniques to help you reconceive distorted and self-defeating patterns in thought, emotion and action, replacing counterproductive with productive ones.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) teaches you to be more deliberate in your daily life, with regard to managing emotions, tolerating and coping effectively with unpleasant or painful experiences and improving relationships.
Positive Psychology develops a more positive perspective toward life and others, finding more joy, freedom and meaning in the process. Through community activities and therapy, you will learn to harness the power of positive emotions, relationships, accomplishments and gratitude, empowering you to move forward in a positive direction in life.
Trauma-Informed Care begins with the recognition of how widespread the experience of trauma actually is, and counteracts it by creating therapeutic environments and recovery practices to help you process past trauma, avoid re-traumatizing conditions and regain your sense of self.
