The Mississippi Physician Health Program is here to help...
The MPHP is a confidential
first line resource for early detection of potential impairment in physicians and other licensed health care professionals who suffer from potentially impairing conditions such as substance use disorders. The goal of the MPHP is to improve the quality of health care for the people of Mississippi through assurance of healthy medical professionals. The MPHP coordinates effective detection, evaluation, treatment, and aftercare monitoring of addictive disorders and other psychiatric illnesses. We also assist professionals with disruptive behavioral problems and other conditions such as physical disability or deterioration through the process of aging.
Our primary focus is on intervention and recovery, with long term, intensive monitoring. The anonymity of our program encourages self-referrals and early intervention, which protects patients and saves the careers of our participants. Additionally, participants in the program benefit from advocacy for malpractice insurance carriers, hospitals, and licensure boards.
