While someone who has a current drug or alcohol problem shouldn’t continue to practice due to patient risk, they should be afforded the same chance at rehabilitation just like professionals in other fields.
Multiple treatment centers have impaired professionals programs that deal with problems directly associated with such a situation. It has been proven time and again that the more a rehab program can be tailored to an individual’s needs, the more successful it likely will be. The same is true for healthcare professionals.
Facilities that offer programs specializing in these types of clients typically include job-specific counseling and support groups for relapse prevention. Once a healthcare professional has regained sobriety and demonstrated stability they should be allowed to continue on with their work helping others.
