Welcome

With compassion, support, accountability, and respect for confidentiality and privacy, the North Carolina Physicians Health Program (NCPHP) strives to improve the health and wellness of medical professionals.

Our experienced team assists health care providers with substance use disorders, mental health issues, burnout, communication problems and other issues that may affect their ability to deliver optimal care and services to their patients. Our expert evaluation, monitoring, and treatment referral programs also provide the basis upon which we advocate for participants to their employers, partners, hospitals, insurance panels, and licensing boards.
