I Need Drug Treatment, But Cannot Take Off Work. What Can I Do?

There are unfortunately, many folks who are struggling with drug and/or alcohol problems. Many of such individuals, would really like to obtain some treatment for their addictions, but are unable to take off work. Either they cannot afford to take off from work, or do not want their boss and coworkers to know that they have a problem with drugs. What are some good options for such individuals?

The simple answer is: Outpatient Treatment.

There are two main forms of drug and alcohol treatment, inpatient and outpatient. Inpatient is where one goes into a facility and stays for usually 30 to 90 days. For some, inpatient treatment is required, because the person has already failed outpatient treatment. Or inpatient treatment may be recommended for a person with severe medical problems, where it would not be safe to have treatment solely on an outpatient basis. Many older patients or those with more severe disabilities require inpatient treatment for their addictions.

However, there are excellent treatments now available on an outpatient basis and most people are good candidates for outpatient treatment. While receiving outpatient treatment, the individual should not have to miss work and therefore, one’s employer cannot find out that their employee has a problem with drugs and alcohol. One such treatment for Opiate Addiction, also known as Opiate Use Disorder; involves utilizing the medication Buprenorphine (Suboxone), which is designed to be used on an outpatient basis. In fact, outpatient treatment with Buprenorphine is considered the Gold Standard for Opiate Use Disorder. That is because, Buprenorphine greatly decreases the cravings for opiates.
