Addiction disrupts lives, devastates families, and is potentially fatal if left untreated.The OU Physicians ExecuCare program is dedicated to providing high quality, comprehensive and compassionate addiction treatment for executives and professionals in a discreet and professional environment. ExecuCare is an outpatient-based program, staffed by a multidisciplinary team, designed to evaluate and treat professionals and executives. ExecuCare is based on the belief that addiction is a medical disease that is chronic and progressive. Individuals afflicted with the disease of addiction require treatment to begin the process of recovery and achieve sobriety.

ExecuCare offers comprehensive psychiatric evaluations, medication evaluations, medication management, and individual, marital/family, and group therapy. Treatment is available for chemical and behavioral addictions (e.g., gambling), mood disorders, trauma, personality disorders, and disruptive behavior. Marital and family therapy services are available to the professional and executive and members of his/her family. 

Fitness-For-Duty Psychological Evaluation:
Julio Rojas, Ph.D. provides fitness-for-duty evaluations consisting of a four hour appointment that includes a face-to-face clinical interview with psychological testing and feedback. An additional four hours is necessary to conduct interviews with family members and other relevant sources, review  medical and treatment records, and complete a report. The comprehensive report will include a recommendation about the individual’s fitness-for-duty, diagnostic information, and treatment recommendations.
