Healthcare Professionals can be affected by addiction just like anyone else. If left untreated, this can lead to many negative effects for medical professionals and patients alike.
We are a confidential Professional Health Program provided by the Utah Department of Commerce, Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing (DOPL). We currently provide services to Physicians, Physician Assistants, Nurses, Pharmacists, Veterinarians, Podiatrists and Dentists licensed by DOPL. UPHP is an alternative to public disciplinary action for licensed medical providers who have substance use disorders.
UPHP serves to promote the health and well being of licensed healthcare professionals through coordination of assessment, treatment placement, and long term aftercare monitoring.
Sadly, many professionals don't know where to seek help, or that if we ask for help, our careers will be ruined. If this sounds familiar to you, or to someone you love, please watch this brief video. You will see that you are not alone and that there is hope.
