NCPHP’s Impact

Since 1988, NCPHP has assisted over 3,000 medical professionals starting with physicians and other licensees of the North Carolina Medical Board.


NCPHP began working with the North Carolina Veterinary Medical Board to help veterinarians and their technicians in 2004. In early 2016, NCPHP was pleased to add pharmacists and pharmacy personnel to our program. NCPHP works with these licensed medical professionals in addressing mental health, substance use, or behavioral issues affecting their ability to provide appropriate medical care.
