There are many times we misunderstand people and we probably think they don’t need medical attention since they look alright and perfect. The interesting thing is, most executives and professionals even face addictions. Most of them may no show it but sooner or later, it starts reflecting on their performance at work and they become less efficient than they used to be.

Executives and Professionals are one set of people that have addictions for substances like alcohol and drugs. Research shows that about 75% of people who play executive roles in organizations or professionals in certain fields are addicts to alcohol (especially). These people handle a lot of work and pressure and believe the only way to reduce them and enhance performance is by taking alcohol.
