Addiction treatment for healthcare professionals

Individuals struggling with addiction who are also working in a healthcare profession face a unique set of challenges in recovery. To address this, Marworth's Healthcare Professionals Treatment Program offers doctors, pharmacists, dentists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses and others working in a healthcare role treatment for abusing drugs or alcohol.

Healthcare professionals with an addiction contend with the following obstacles:

  • Access to pharmaceuticals
  • Exposure to trauma
  • Focus on taking care of others, but not yourself
  • High profile status in profession and community
  • Licensing concerns
  • Back to work implications
  • Confidentiality concerns
