Featured: Listen to the NPR Story Program Treats Addicts in Health Care by Patricia Murphy, June 11, 2008.

Questions to consider:

  • What constitutes a diagnosis of addiction to alcohol or other drugs?
  • How do I help someone I know get appropriate help?
  • What are the legal issues when a health care professional has a problem?
  • What resources are available for educating my staff?
  • What is a Peer Assistance Program?
  • How do I interview a therapist, counselor, treatment program?
  • Who in my area is established as competent and successful at treatment?
  • What is an Advocate?
  • What are the costs?

If you are concerned about someone you love or work with or for there is something you can do.

The Commonwealth of Virginia has such a program, as does Pennsylvania, Florida, Western Michigan, and others. Contact me at for informaton and referral to these advocacy systems.
