Woodlake Addiction Recovery Center provides weekly group sessions to our residential patients to discuss and process specific challenges and concerns related to the work environment and recovery issues of many professional groups. Particular professions are prone to more stress and fatigue or even challenges of accessing drugs of abuse in the work place. The unique needs of each professional is explored in the Professionals Group to assist professional patients in developing healthy responses to stress, work place coping skills, and how to communicate with colleagues about their recovery upon returning to work. The professional staff and counselors at Woodlake will communicate directly with licensing boards and professional certification agencies as necessary in order to communicate progress and the patient’s status in treatment as requested and necessary.
