Maplegrove Referring Physicians
Healthcare professionals are the physicians, nurses, counselors and technicians who have dedicated themselves to caring for others. However, it can be hard to maintain the balance between taking care of others and taking care of themselves. If healthcare providers ignore their own needs, a problem may develop.
Our specialists at the Henry Ford Maplegrove Center, the home for addiction treatment at Henry Ford Behavioral Health Services, provide comprehensive addiction therapy services for healthcare providers.
Addiction therapy for healthcare professionals in Michigan
Caring for the individual who cares for others can be complicated. Day after day, healthcare providers perform highly specialized procedures and meet with patients and families during times of health challenges. They often push aside their own healthcare needs and may not even be aware that a crisis is developing.
Since 1988, our specialists have provided the individualized care healthcare providers need with skill and sensitivity. Meet the Maplegrove team.
We understand our patients’:
- Unique needs. We understand that healthcare professionals suffering from an addiction may feel guilt, shame and desperation about their circumstances as they seek treatment.
- Professional circumstances. Healthcare professionals often need to talk with another healthcare provider who understands their crises and pressures. They need someone who can help develop a plan to restore them to health and their profession.
Addiction therapy for healthcare professionals: what to expect
Help for healthcare professionals is only a phone call away. Our goal is to help healthcare providers successfully re-enter their professions. We have a three-phase therapy plan:
- Interruption. Stopping the cycle of addiction and establishing abstinence
- Rehabilitation. Facilitating education and therapy so the patient recognizes and accepts the addiction, as well as beginning daily routines of recovery.
- Recovery. Implementing ongoing support, including counseling and 12-step meetings, to promote stability and long-term wellbeing.
Features of our treatment program for healthcare professionals include:
- Inpatient and outpatient assessment and treatment for addicted healthcare professionals
- Group, individual and family counseling sessions, tailored to the unique needs of healthcare professionals with substance use disorders
- Sessions with other addicted healthcare professionals, where they learn how to accept being a patient in need of care.
- Clinical care provider for the Health Professional Recovery Program (HPRP) since 1994 (when Michigan initiated the program). We work closely with HPRP to ensure our patients have the choice and option to re-enter their professions.
