It is estimated that around 10 percent of all doctors will face an addiction problem at some point in their career. When doctors suffer from an addiction, where can they turn for help and support?
The Pennsylvania Medical Society (PAMED), in collaboration with The Foundation of the Pennsylvania Medical Society, has developed this online course "Support Groups for Physicians in Recovery: Caduceus Meetings/IDAA" to help provide information regarding available supports for doctors seeking recovery from an addiction.
The webinar is presented by Dr. Clifford Lyons, MD, who serves as the Medical Director for the Physicians’ Health Programs (PHP). The PHP provides support and advocacy to physicians struggling with addiction.
