The MPHP, sponsored by the MSMA, is available to all Missouri physicians, and is designed to facilitate the physician's return to healthy, personal, and professional functioning through early identification, intervention and treatment.
Our mission is to facilitate the physician's return to a healthy personal and professional life through early identification, intervention, treatment referral, long-term monitoring and advocacy. It is available to all Missouri physicians, physicians in training, and medical students.
Consultation - Let the MPHP guide the first steps to recovery for you, a loved one, or a colleague. Consult us before taking action.
Intervention - Though not always necessary, our staff is trained in professional intervention strategies. They can make the difference in successful referral for treatment and recovery.
Evaluation - Great treatment starts with an accurate, reliable, and valuable evaluation.
Treatment Referral - Make use of the MPHP's network of the best treatment services in the field. We do not provide treatment but we know who can.
Monitoring - Monitoring improves the success rate from about 35% to 90%. This ensures that the physicians who are enrolled in the program follow through with their recovery. Great treatment is always followed up with monitoring.
Advocacy - Our financial independence means objectivity and freedom to act with your best interests in mind. We are independent of licensure agencies like the BHA, BNDD, and DEA.
Licensor Issues - We advocate for participants with licensing authorities, BNDD, DEA, the court system, employers, and insurance companies.
Legal Counsel - MPHP provides access to legal counsel regarding regulatory guidelines, legal matters, and more.
