    Overview

    Healthcare providers in the U.S., through Professional Health Programs, are typically afforded the opportunity to be evaluated, treated when necessary, and monitored for long-term stability in order to prevent loss of life and licensure. This model has been successful with a multitude of addiction and other psychiatric disorders.

    Participants will:

    • Understand the PHP evaluation and follow-up process.
    • Become aware of the outcomes of such programs.
    • Consider whether this model should be available to other populations.
