Health Professionals Program
“Health Professionals Program” designates specialty centers that evaluate and treat licensed health professionals suffering with substance use disorders, addiction and dual diagnosis. Accordingly, if recommended by the Medical Director of the State PHP Professional or Physician Health Program, Dental Wellbeing Program or Nurses’ Program (such as PRN or IPN in Florida), the participant must enter a rehab that is an approved provider of the Department of Health, for treatment.
BoardPrep Recovery Center is an approved provider of Florida’s Department of Health, Professional’s Resource Network and Intervention Project for Nurses. Furthermore, many other Boards throughout the U.S. refer their health professionals to BoardPrep.
Treatment for Health Professionals requires a special approach
A private bedroom in an upscale residence sets a relaxing tone. Furthermore, delicious meals remind residents they are loved. Additionally, a safe and clean environment reinforces a sense of security. Health professionals (nurses, pharmacists, physicians), attorneys and other professionals treated for addiction and dual-diagnosis at BoardPrep Recovery, cherish the empathy and sensitivity shown by our team. Already at the lowest point of their lives, they feared being further humiliated. Instead, they experienced the warmth, compassion and professionalism that is commonplace at BoardPrep. Indeed, it was “just what the doctor ordered.”

Professionals are not immune to substance use disorders and dual-disorders. Furthermore, alcoholism and addiction in healthcare providers come with specific challenges. Therefore, experience matters when it comes to understanding and providing proper treatment to licensed health professionals. Not surprisingly, the clinicians of BoardPrep Recovery Center have assessed and treated over 1,000 licensed health professionals (MD, DO, RN, CRNA, ARNP, DMD, DVM, DC, Med Students, RPh, etc.) from Florida and across the nation in the past 20 years. Furthermore, BoardPrep is an approved provider for the Florida Department of Health and is also approved by many other States for the treatment of their licensed health professionals.
Special issues with licensed health professionals in treatment include:
- proper assessment

- return to work planning
- experienced advocacy
- knowledge of regulatory bodies, monitoring agencies and administrative rules
