The Physicians' Health Program (PHP),
a program of The Foundation of the
Pennsylvania Medical Society, the
charitable arm of PAMED, provides
support and advocacy to physicians
struggling with addiction or physical
or mental challenges. The program also
offers information and support to the
families of impaired physicians and
encourages their involvement in the
recovery process. Find out more at

Self-prescribed and other informal care provided by physicians: scope,
correlations, and implications. Gendel, M., et al. J Med Ethics 2012;
38:294-298

After reviewing all of these factors, I feel that I am on solid
ethical and practical ground when I ask our participants to
eschew prescribing for their family. This requirement will not
only reinforce the avoidance of drugs that can trigger a relapse,
but will also help the participants to circumvent stressful
situations which may arise when they unadvisedly act as a
treatment provider for their family and friends. Recovery is
hard enough without the added pressure.
