The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration conduct yearly surveys of the impact drug use has on our nation's health. In 2021, the survey revealed that 14.3% of Americans (or 40.0 million people) used illicit drugs in the previous month, and 47.5% (or 133.1 million people) drank alcohol. Of these, 46.3 million people met the criteria to be diagnosed with a substance use disorder.

Do Executives Become Addicted to Alcohol and Drugs?

The short answer to this question is, yes, executives, like people from every walk of life, become addicted to alcohol and drugs. Many people have a misguided view of addiction and associate drug or alcohol addiction with people living on the street.

Without a doubt, the downward spiral of dependency and addiction without recovery can leave people penniless and homeless. But many people living with addiction continue to work and, on the surface, appear to function well just as they did before.

Many executives struggling with substance abuse succeed in masking their condition. Well-dressed and seemingly alert, they are at their desk and in the boardroom promptly. To a casual observer, they seem to be at the top of their game.

But internally, they are suffering, and each day of surreptitious alcohol or drug use takes its toll. Fearing exposure or that intoxication might impact their work can cause anxiety levels to rise. In turn, drug or alcohol use increases, and stress eats away at self-esteem, confidence, and general well-being.

The truth is that highly educated and successful people are affected by drug and alcohol addiction daily. Professionals and athletes are no more immune to the dangers of substance abuse than anyone else. In fact, because of work-related stress, busy executives and other high-level professionals can be particularly vulnerable to mental health and substance abuse problems.

Why Executives are Prone to Drug and Alcohol Addiction

Executive drug and alcohol addiction is a growing problem. The negative impact of substance abuse disorders on the US economy is estimated to be $249 billion for alcohol misuse and $193 billion for illicit drug use every year.

As a high-achieving executive, your mind is sharp, your thinking quick, and you feel motivated to take action that propels your company and career forward. These characteristics are typical of influential and successful professionals. However, when examined from a psychological and neurological perspective, they also leave you vulnerable to developing a substance use disorder.

It is argued that success-oriented behavior like dedication, obsession, ambition, novelty-seeking, and risk-taking not only makes for a good executive but also drives us into addiction.

As a goal-oriented executive, you derive pleasure from success. A new, exciting, perhaps even risky, business opportunity lights up the same neural pathways that substance abuse activates— the brain circuits controlling reward, pleasure, stress, learning, decision-making, and impulse control.

Substance Abuse and Executive Pressure

In addition to a mindset that leaves executives vulnerable to substance abuse, the high-pressure executive lifestyle can push professionals towards addiction.

The weight of work responsibility, the nature of high-level decision-making, stress from meeting targets, and anxiety over job performance can feel overwhelming. For many executive drug users, substance abuse begins as a way to contain these pressures.

Initially, alcohol and drugs are used recreationally and seem effective in relieving stress. But what begins as occasional use soon mushrooms into a debilitating compulsion. Essentially, an over-stressed executive attempts to self-medicate with a drink or other addictive substances.

Confidentiality and Executive Rehab

We understand that in the professional world, your reputation is beyond price. That is why our executive treatment programs at Vita Recovery emphasize confidentiality. No one will know you are seeking treatment when you attend our executive rehab. Every aspect of your rehabilitation program is handled with the utmost care and discretion.

For many executives, fear of the stigma associated with drug and alcohol addiction is a barrier to accessing the treatment they need. Some fear that the revelation of substance abuse struggles could cost them their job.

But the stigma and prejudice are unwarranted. As the National Institute on Drug Abuse makes clear, overcoming addiction isn't a matter of willpower or moral principles - you are overcoming a disease. No matter how competent and professionally able a person might be, once addicted, stopping is a tremendous challenge.

Drug and alcohol addiction are complex diseases. Substance abuse can't be ended easily because addiction causes changes in the brain and mental health disorders. So, whoever we are, if we want a life free from drug and alcohol abuse, we need to find a rehab program and treatment center that addresses our needs.

And at Vita Recovery, that's exactly what you will find - an executive rehab for discreet substance abuse treatment.

  • Relapse prevention: By working with you to understand negative thinking patterns and triggers and providing the education, coping skills, and planning you need, we can help you guard against future relapse.

  • Continuing Care Plans: Our addiction treatment experts will develop an aftercare plan and help you explore sober living options to prevent relapse when you leave the treatment center.
