Despite the rising rates of alcohol abuse in the United States, people struggling with alcohol abuse still face plenty of social stigmas. The potential repercussions of admitting to an alcohol addiction make it difficult for some people to ask for help.
15.1% Americans of licensed professionals would be classified as having Alcohol Use Disorder. Discreet and convenient tools like alcohol monitoring with Soberlink are crucial for providing individual with the help they need. They enable people to maintain their privacy while still receiving effective alcohol treatment.
Why Alcohol Monitoring?
Alcohol monitoring is the practice of using a device to detect, record, and track an individual’s alcohol consumption. The systems are useful for Family Law cases, Workplace Compliance issues, and Addiction Treatment. Users submit tests at predetermined times to ensure they adherence to their sobriety and recovery.
There are numerous types of alcohol monitoring devices available. Wearable devices or those installed in vehicles are two of the most common options. These devices are cumbersome and easily noticeable, though. They’re not ideal for licensed professionals trying to maintain a low-profile recovery.
Outcomes for Licensed Professionals
Licensed Professionals have similar numbers as to the general population, but they have higher recovery rates. Licensed professionals who receive treatment are more likely to maintain long-term recovery. Many credit the monitoring programs that are the norm in many professions. Often, incorporating tools like alcohol monitoring systems helps provide another layer of support and accountability for newly-sober professionals in safety-sensitive careers.
One study revealed that using alcohol monitoring as part of a comprehensive treatment program was effectively rehabilitated physicians over five years. Dr. Gregory Skipper, a head researcher of the study, acknowledges devices like Soberlink as an essential tool for this industry population.
He explains that alcohol monitoring devices are imperative in providing supportive recovery accountability and ensuring Workplace Compliance. Dated technology and clunky tools from alcohol monitoring technology’s infancy have trouble integrating seamlessly into their lives. Professionals who want to return to work, while managing their recovery, often find that convenient, discreet devices fit into their routine best.
