Drug Addiction and Alcoholism is a Disease That Can Affect Anyone
Many individuals that are suffering from alcoholism or drug addiction are intellectual beings with dreams and career goals. An addiction treatment program for professionals is the ideal choice for any professional struggling with addiction. The disease of addiction cannot be defined by race, gender, age, religion, nor a person’s career choice. It is a known fact that drug abuse and alcohol abuse can effect public figures and high profile individuals.
Trusted professionals that are respected in society and for their line of work are susceptible to alcoholism and/or drug addiction just like any other person. Professionals with higher levels of education are equally susceptible to substance abuse. They are not immune to the disease of addiction by any stretch of the imagination. Substance abuse by professionals can be caused by stress and pressure at work, physically demanding and mentally demanding responsibilities, and long strenuous work hours.
Professional Addiction Treatment at The Florida House Experience
Abusing drugs or alcohol as a professional could be threatening to your career. Professionals, like any other individual, may be in denial or unwilling to admit that they have a substance abuse problem. Your substance abuse can become a problem in the workplace with your interaction with co-workers and at home with your family. Your reputation, personal finances, and everything that you have worked for is put on the line. Continuing drug abuse or alcohol abuse while going to work every day is a serious risk with more than a handful of negative consequences as a professional that is respected in society.

The Pilot’s Program: Specialized Addiction Treatment for Airline Pilots
Alcohol abuse and drug abuse are highly sensitive issues in the aviation industry. Pilots undergo frequent physical examinations and must meet certain medical criteria, including an outstanding history of good health. Any sign of mental disease or nervous disease could threaten the airline pilot’s ability to fly. Airline pilots are reluctant to admit, or fear admitting, a substance abuse problem.
Airline pilots have a dual responsibility. Not only must they follow the standard operating procedures of their airline employer, but they must be knowledgeable, aware, and exhibit physical and mental health standards consistent with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requirements in their flying skills.
The physical and mental pressures of airline pilots in their every day work can be excessive. Flying is a form of public transportation and an airline pilot has the duty and responsibility to keep passengers on board each flight safe and secure. The weight of responsibility on pilots in the airline industry is so great that it can create difficult mental and physical pressures upon the pilot himself. The number of lives a pilot is responsible for during a single flight places an extremely high level of responsibility that the pilot must constantly acknowledge. Both the FAA and airline companies have implemented strict policies on drug and alcohol abuse and mandatory drug testing, such as the DOT drug testing program.
The Florida House Experience offers a specialized state of the art Pilot’s Addiction Treatment Program designed to address issues specific to the aviation industry. The addiction treatment modalities in our Pilots Program are specialized for airline pilots only. Recovering addicts will receive the highest level of individualized attention in addiction treatment programs using industry accepted treatment modalities. We work closely with the FAA, the HIMS (Human Intervention Motivation Study) Program, and company EAPs (Employee Assistance Programs) to help you maintain your success as a prestigious airline pilot – free from drug abuse or alcohol abuse. Not only do we recognize the high performance level that is required for airline pilots on a daily basis, but we also recognize that pilots are human beings—and no one in any line of professional work is immune to the disease of addiction.
