Potentially impairing illnesses include abuse and dependency on mood altering drugs including alcohol, psychiatric illness, stress and burnout, personality disorders, sexual disorders which can result in sexual misconduct, and some physical conditions. PHN terms these illnesses “potentially impairing” since all these products exist on a continuum and are not “impairing” in their earlier stages. PHN wishes to intervene before a potentially impairing illness results in overt impairment.
Dr. Gary Carr was head of the FSPHP Steering Committee that worked with outside investigators to study state PHPs. This Committee discovered that of 904 physicians from sixteen states, 78% were sober without relapse at an average of 7.2 years of monitoring. If we consider those who had a relapse and further treatment, we find over 90% in stable recovery at 7 years. Yes!! These programs work.
