Addiction Recovery for Nurses

The American Nurses Association estimates as many as 8 percent of nurses have an alcohol or drug substance use disorder.

  • Assistance with license shielding paperwork
  • Education and guidance related to monitoring requirements
  • Facilitate ongoing evaluation and documentation
  • Disability/FMLA guidance
  • General community for therapy and recovery treatment
  • Assigned therapists trained in the unique challenges licensed health care professionals face
  • Sensitivity to issues of shame and guilt
  • IOP/OP programs
  • Return to work guidance
