Since 1983, the Oklahoma Health Professionals Program Inc. has provided services to over 900 physicians and health care providers with alcohol and chemical dependence. OHPP, Inc. is an outreach program designed to support and monitor medical and allied health professionals throughout Oklahoma who are experiencing difficulty with substance abuse, as well as disruptive and boundary issues.
Because of the commitment to provide resources to professionals in need, OHPP, Inc. employs a medical director and 3 part time associate directors to administer the program.
Our program continues to be a leader nationally in identifying problems, assisting in treatment, and returning to practice those physicians who have suffered from substance abuse or dependency.
We provide a safe environment in which physicians can talk to other physicians about the stress and demands of modern medical practice. Issues often relate to the difficulties of managing practice, coping with a competitive work environment, financial pressures, dealing with administrative burdens, and work-family balance.
Our services are confidential and include expert consultation and intervention designed to encourage physicians to seek help for substance abuse and behavioral concerns.
OHPP, Inc. is a confidential resource for any physician, dentist, resident, student, group practice or hospital faced with any of the following physician concerns:
- Substance Use Disorders
- Behavioral Health
