Specialized Addiction Treatment for Actors

It seems like actors “have it all.” They have exciting lives,
fascinating jobs, plenty of money, and the adoration of fans around the
world. However, actors and other performers also live with constant
pressure, very little downtime, and virtually no privacy. The life of an
actor isn’t as easy as it may seem. 

People in show business have the same life problems as anybody else,
but their personal matters, family issues or career ups and downs are
always open to public scrutiny.

Often, the life of an performer is lonely and mentally and physically
exhausting. Actors may feel isolated from the care and comfort of
friends and family. In some cases, they experience a high degree of
shame and embarrassment. They may turn to drugs and alcohol to relieve
the pressure. 

Some performers are thrill-seekers, pre-wired by nature to seek
excitement. The entertainment world offers plenty of opportunities and
the ready access of drugs makes it more difficult to say no.

Whatever the reason, addiction is a chronic disease that changes the
brain in very real ways. Substance abuse and addiction can happen to
anyone, and actors aren’t immune. 

However, actors may be hesitant to seek drug and alcohol treatment
or rehab due to concerns about lack of privacy and potential damage to
public image if word leaks out. Their concerns are valid; many treatment
centers promise confidentiality, yet every relapse or slip is tabloid
fodder.

Addiction Treatment for Actors: Confidentiality is a Must

Certain high-profile people have decided to share their addiction with the world, including the details of their treatment and recovery. However, if you’re an actor and you’re struggling with substance abuse, the decision to share is yours alone. Your life is your business.

At Paracelsus Recovery, we honor your need for total confidentiality and discretion, and we accomplish this by treating only one client at a time. All treatment and therapy sessions come to you.

While you are in treatment for drug or alcohol addiction, we also address any underlying problems such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, trauma, etc., as well as your physical health and nutrition issues that may be contributing to addiction. If you have a behavioral addiction like gambling, or if you struggle with an eating disorder, we can treat that as well.

Treatment for Actors in Luxurious Surroundings

During your stay in Zurich, you’ll stay at a private residence, which may be a luxury hotel or our exclusive clinical residence, depending on your preference. A live-in therapist will be on call around the clock and you’ll also have a private chef, housekeeper, butler and access to a limousine, with a driver. 

If you’re a performer and you’re struggling with addiction or substance abuse, we invite you to give us a call as soon as possible. Don’t wait until your life unravels completely, as addiction is a progressive disease that only gets worse without treatment.
