I have been involved with the Oklahoma Health Professionals Program (OHPP) for over 7 years and it has been one of the best experiences of my life. At first, compliance with the state board’s requests seemed like an impossible task. Meetings, Affinity testing, meeting sheets, it all seemed like cruel punishment. Forced accountability made me feel suffocated.
However, over the years, I developed relationships with the OHPP staff, other professionals and AA members and I realized healthy people ARE accountable and it became a part of my everyday life.
I was recently released from my probation and will continue with my recovery as before. I am forever grateful for OHPP, AA and all the people involved for saving my life and making me the person I am today.
