Working in the medical field or legal field can be both exceptionally rewarding and overwhelmingly stressful.
Depending on the type of job that one holds and the level of responsibility involved in the specific profession, some men and women resort to unhealthy coping methods in order to cope with stress, emotional pain, or occupational pressure.
Unfortunately, many people in the medical and legal professions turn to substance abuse in a misguided effort to cope with stressors in their lives. When this behavior leads to addiction, professional help is needed both to help the individual regain his or her health and to enable him or her to return to his or her career.
Located in South Dakota, we at Keystone Treatment Center understand the dedication and effort that it takes to work in the medical or legal field, and we also understand how damaging a substance abuse problem can be for someone who works in one of these respected professions. For these reasons, we are proud to offer exemplary treatment that is specifically designed for these men and women.
If you work in the medical or legal field, then you likely know the devastation that substance abuse can cause. You may have lost your license to practice medicine or law, received disciplinary action due to your substance abuse, or you may have even been fired from your job because your addiction prevented you from doing it well.
Whatever the circumstances that you have endured as a result of your addiction, we at Keystone can help. Our specialized Medical and Legal Professionals Treatment Track was created to assist individuals such as yourself in achieving sobriety and returning to your career with renewed vigor for the profession that you worked so hard to attain.

If you have been referred to a diversionary program as a result of your substance abuse, our staff can collaborate with you and the program to ensure that you are taking the necessary steps needed to once again practice medicine or law.
As you navigate your road to recovery, you will participate in a blend of therapies that will help you to unearth, process, and overcome the issues that led you to abuse substances in the first place.
