High Functioning Addict is a term for those who work in high pressure situations and this causes high stress in many other aspects of their lives, but they harbor a secret (or not so secret in many cases) addiction to alcohol and/or drugs. They may be leading a dual life, successful on the outside, but miserable on the inside. We know that you, like us, want to solve this problem before it crashes down.
These High Pressure achievers may be senior managers, celebrities, heads of corporations, entrepreneurs, or they could even be internet and tech gurus. No matter how much success they achieve they lack the ability to stop the addiction from affecting their lives. It usually is a negative event such as a DUI, health crisis, or acting out that brings the problem to the surface.
A few insightful proactive people reach out before they are forced. Their motivation may be more of internal pressure, wanting to be a better husband, wife, father, mother, or simply the frustration of having this one thing they cannot control. Is this you?
One of the major issues in getting help is the belief that, “Since I am successful, my use (drinking, drugs, gambling, and sex) is my reward for my work”. They usually are not accountable for their time to outsiders, which helps hide the addiction (for a while anyway). They may also be financially able to spend almost unlimited amounts on their addiction. They literal can hide the problem till they die. The list of people, especially celebrities who died before getting help grows every day. They also may not want, or be able to “go away” for 28 days for a variety of reasons.
