Substance Abuse Treatments for Athletes
Athletes face an unusual amount of pressure during and after their careers. They are subject to chronic pain from injuries, the stress of performance goals and even pressure from the public. Fans often see athletes as living a dream life, playing a game or competing in a sport for a large sum of money instead of working a regular job. But from the athlete's point of view, there are many responsibilities that come with that role, and it is not always just fun and games.
The long-term ramifications of a life spent in physical competition, especially at the top of the field, include both physical and emotional pain. Many times an athlete's coping mechanism can turn deadly in the form of addiction. Tranquil Shores understands how a top-performing athlete can wake up one day and realize they need help with a substance abuse problem. For many athletes, this transition can happen quickly.
Chronic Pain and Addiction
Drug and alcohol treatment for athletes addresses the cycle of addiction brought on by chronic pain. By nature of their profession, athletes are more prone to injury than most of us. They use their bodies in pursuit of extreme physical accomplishments. When injury strikes, they are often not able to give their bodies enough rest to heal. Repeated injuries are more likely to occur, and pain becomes chronic.
Many modern painkillers are also addictive. An athlete seeking the pain relief required to stay in the game may be treading in dangerous territory with large, frequent or prolonged doses for these substances. Addiction can develop quickly, and by the time you realize there is a problem, you need professional help.
Some athletes might also think they have to choose between chronic pain and substance abuse. We are experienced in working with athletes who need an alternative to addictive painkillers to resume a happy lifestyle.
Confidential Addiction Recovery for Athletes
Many athletes live in the public eye, whether they are nationally recognized or just standouts in their community for their achievements on the field. Our society holds athletes up as role models for kids, which makes it even harder for those addicted to substances to get the help they need. For many, admitting a substance abuse problem would tarnish their public image and possibly ruin their careers.
Tranquil Shores offers a completely confidential private rehab facility for athletes and others who need to maintain their anonymity. Unfortunately, there is still a negative stigma attached to drug addiction, although it is a mental illness that does not discriminate. At Tranquil Shores' secluded Madeira Beach location, even professional athletes can seek the addiction recovery treatment they need without creating a discoverable paper trail of insurance claims and records.
Our society holds athletes in high regard and considers them stronger than most. Addiction, however, does not discriminate and can happen to even the toughest athlete. We provide opportunities for athletes to prove their strength by overcoming their addictions and learning safer means of pain management.
3-to-1 Client to Counselor Ratio
Recovering from addiction is hard work that can involve self-examination and behavior modification. It’s important that you receive personal guidance for this unique journey and not simply be pushed through a set program by well-meaning practitioners. At Tranquil Shores, we’ve established a 3-to-1 client to counselor ratio so you get the personal attention you deserve.
With only three clients to every counselor, we can take the time to really get to know you and address your changing needs as you grow through recovery. Addiction recovery is a personal experience, and at Tranquil Shores we make recovery personal, too.
