Treatment for Healthcare ProfessionalsSpecialized addiction treatment for healthcare professionals

Alcohol and drug treatment designed specifically for the unique needs of healthcare professionals.

Serenity Lane’s Healthcare Professionals program provides comprehensive services to healthcare professionals with a substance use disorder. The program includes evaluation, planning, treatment, case management, and advocacy with licensing boards or employers on behalf of our healthcare professional patients.

Addiction treatment for medical professionals designed by medical professionals

The program is managed by Dr. Eric Geisler, Serenity Lane’s Medical Director and a board-certified addiction-specialist. Further coordination is provided by Jerry Gjesvold, Manager of Employer Services. They have extensive training in substance use disorders and maintain confidential communication for each case.

Healthcare professionals have unique access to controlled substances, possess a high level of self-awareness that can be a barrier to accepting help and are employed in an extremely high-stress field. Serenity Lane’s integrated model provides treatment that meets the unique needs of healthcare professionals with a substance use disorder.

This includes:

  • Longer length of residential stay
  • Partial Hospitalization/Day Treatment
  • Mental health programming for co-occurring disorders
  • Advice and support from trusted experts on issues related to licensing and board reporting and compliance

Helping medical professionals in all areas

Serenity Lane’s Healthcare Professionals program may include consultation with workplace compliance and state-board reporting as part of supporting patients with:

  • Comprehensive care planning
  • Return-to-work evaluation with recommendations on fitness to practice
  • Reports to employer, licensing board or other professional contacts as needed

All of Serenity Lane’s addiction treatment programs are licensed and accredited by CARF (The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities). Our Oregon programs are also licensed by the Oregon State Department of Addiction and Mental Health (AMH) and our Washington programs are licensed by the Washington State Department of Behavioral Health and Recovery (DBHR).
