Addiction Treatment for Professionals

Addiction Treatment for Professionals

Addiction Treatment for Professionals requires a special approach

Nurses, physicians, attorneys and other professionals treated for addiction and dual-diagnosis at BoardPrep Recovery, cherish the empathy and sensitivity shown by our team. Already at the lowest point of their lives, they feared being further humiliated. Instead, they experienced the warmth, compassion and professionalism that is commonplace at BoardPrep. Indeed, it was “just what the doctor ordered.”

Based on a comprehensive multi-disciplinary evaluation, BoardPrep individualizes treatment plans for professionals. 


6 Week + IOP/OP Program

Most professionals who come to BoardPrep for inpatient treatment, for the first time, transition to outpatient after approximately 6 weeks.

Eligibility based on assessment findings:

  • Absence of complex dual diagnosis
  • Absence of legal problems or board issues (med pros)
  • Legal/board issues are manageable as an outpatient
  • Available high-quality outpatient or IOP near home
  • Professional monitoring program endorsement

Program description

  • Complete A-C phase (described below)
  • Transition to Intensive Outpatient or Outpatient services

12 Week Program

(84 day estimated length of stay)

When needed, BoardPrep uses a 4 Phase/12 Week model program to structure the experience. The example below is for a professional who completed A through D phase in 12 weeks

Eligibility based on assessment findings:

  • Complex dual diagnosis
  • Legal or Board complications
  • Concerns expressed by professional monitoring program

Program description

  • Complete A-D phase (described below)
  • Then assess need for E Phase (extended Recovery Residence)

Description of the Phases

A Phase: Orientation, detoxification, stabilization, early education & support (about 7 days)

B Phase: Education, acclimation and early integration into recovery community (about 14 days)

C Phase: Introspection, making changes, reducing relapse risk (about 21 days)

D Phase: Clinical hours reduced for work/school, preparation (about 42 days)


Extended Care

E Phase: Full-time work or school while maintaining robust recovery schedule

  • Continue in Recovery Residence, aftercare meetings, individual sessions and psychiatric follow-up as recommended
  • 3-9 months as recommended

The Collaborative Treatment Process

The first 3 phases of BoardPrep’s 5-phase system form the foundation for continued recovery in a less structured setting. Based on ongoing ASAM dimensional assessment, many clients are recommended to return home and continue their recovery in an outpatient or intensive outpatient setting.

When clients transition from B-phase to C-phase, a comprehensive clinical review is undertaken by the interdisciplinary treatment team. Clients are endorsed for transition to outpatient or intensive outpatient at 6 weeks (upon completion of C-phase) based on the following criteria:

  • Behavioral stability and compliance with treatment plan
  • Medication compliance, including Vivitrol when recommended
  • Positive response to treatment
  • Completion of individualized assignment packet
  • Endorsement of professional monitoring program (med pros)
  • “Pre-admission” to OP or IOP completed prior to transition

Making the right choice

Studies show that identifying with or relating to others in treatment is one key to early recovery. When a person goes to a rehab in a place where they feel they do not belong, because they cannot relate to others in the group, it can actually do more harm than good.
