Drug and alcohol addiction may be the real Wolf Of Wall Street

“The pressures of working long hours combined with late nights entertaining clients creates the perfect setup for addiction to drugs and alcohol,” says Dr. Stuart Kloda. “There are many professionals in New York City, working long stressful hours. They are trying to make it big, and striving to make a good life for themselves in one of the most expensive cities in the country,” he says. 

“The unique pressures in the financial industry stem from having to manage other people's money,” says Dr. Kloda. “This is a scary responsibility. You could ruin someone's life if you make a mistake, or if there is a bad outcome that was beyond your control, which is similar in some ways to being a physician. Also, with one bad outcome, you can be fired and replaced right away.”

“This is New York City - there is alway someone available to take your place,” says Dr. Kloda.

“In contrast to the popular image of cocaine-fueled financial workers, most financial industry workers who use drugs become hooked on prescription pain killers,” says Dr. Kloda. “We often hear about people hitting ‘rock bottom’, but many highly functioning individuals and professionals turn to alcohol or drugs like oxycodone to deal with personal and professional stressors. They realize that they are becoming addicted and seek help before they lose everything.”

“In particular, the younger guys in the financial industry are expected to entertain clients at night. This is considered essential, as business relationships are formed this way. Entertaining clients involves late night dinners and partying, then an early morning return to work, as usual. This type of lifestyle is a perfect setup for addiction to drugs and alcohol,” says Dr. Kloda. “Drug addiction often starts with the abuse of oxycodone and other opioids, all of which can be readily available among co-workers.” 

“I provide confidential, one-on-one treatment tailored to executives and professionals who are highly motivated to take control of their addiction,” says Dr. Kloda. “I understand the unique demands of a high pressure job, which allows me to form a successful therapeutic relationship with my patients.”

About Dr. Kloda:
Dr. Stuart Kloda completed a rigorous two-year Addiction Medicine Fellowship at the Addiction Institute of New York, a Columbia University affiliate in Manhattan located at St. Luke’s & Roosevelt Hospitals.

Dr. Kloda offers detoxification for people with drug and alcohol addictions. He offers at home drug addiction help. Medical detoxification is medically supervised withdrawal.
