Anesthesia Professionals Curriculum & Approach to Care
Serenity Grove was founded by, and is operated by anesthesia professionals for anesthesia professionals. It is no secret that the rate of substance use disorder among our ranks is greater than the norm. Nor is it any surprise that no one can provide the level of understanding and focused care to one impaired anesthesia professional than another anesthesia professional.
Our anesthesia provider clinical care team at Serenity Grove is uniquely qualified to treat addiction in the anesthesia population. We tailor a plan unique to the specific situation and needs of each anesthesia professional seeking help from our clinical anesthesia addiction care team. We welcome:
- Anesthesia Administrators
- Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists
- Anesthesiologist’s Assistants
- Anesthesia Educators
- Pain Management Physicians & Staff
Addiction and substance abuse treatment can be complex, especially in cases of impaired anesthesia professionals. As anesthesia professionals, we have a firm grasp on the pharmacology and unique drugs of abuse that can present with the impaired anesthesia provider. Mainstream addiction treatment programs are often ill equipped to handle clients suffering from addictions to Propofol, ketamine, volatile anesthetics, nitrous oxide, and other agents unique to anesthesia practice. At Serenity Grove’s Anesthesia Professionals Program, we understand these issues and are prepared to deal with them head on.
Our care team consists of American Society of Addiction Medicine member clinicians, who are experienced and prepared to work with human resource personnel, licensing boards, professional societies and government agencies, as appropriate, to get the impaired professionals under our care on the road to recovery and back to work or licensure as quickly as possible and with the tools for long-term compliance.
Our rehab program treats the immediate needs of the anesthesia professional, creates a foundation for long-term compliance, and prepares a plan for achieving the professional, personal, and familial goals of each individual client in our care. Our experience with regard to matters of self-reporting and peer assistance issues can be a great help to any anesthesia provider with questions about these matters.
Discretion & Confidentiality
Aside from getting the care that meets the unique needs of the impaired professional, we find that no issue is of more concern to these clients than discretion. At Serenity Grove, we understand the need for privacy and we are HIPPA compliant and we meet or exceed the legal standard that pertains to most programs.
The fantastic amenities found at Lake Oconee are a welcoming comfort to the professional seeking alcohol and/or drug addiction treatment. However, the discretion of the area is what often allows clients to focus 100% of their attention on the treatment program, without fear or apprehension of being recognized that comes with some high-traffic resort areas.
We are committed to answering questions or concerns, and offer our assurance that each inquiry will be handled in the strictest confidence. We will not ask you for your last name or identifying information for such inquiries.
