Each year, more than 76 million people suffer from chronic pain — pain that lasts longer than 24 hours — and millions more suffer from acute pain. Learning to manage chronic pain can be a stressful, debilitating experience, leading many down a road where they find themselves dependent upon pain medication to get through the day. Just when you find that your pain is manageable, you become at risk of becoming addicted to the pain medication that has brought you relief. Over time, physical dependence can snowball into addiction.
The impact of addiction is far reaching for anyone. But for physicians and white collar professionals it can be particularly difficult. Concerns about permanently damaging your career and earning potential as well as your personal reputation can make it especially difficult to seek assistance. Highly skilled and accomplished professionals are accustomed to exceling at what they do and as a result, are not always comfortable asking for help. Don’t put your career at risk. Call our Impaired Professionals hotline to start your recovery at (800) 366-8101.
