Exceptional Treatment for Healthcare Professionals
Long, exhausting shifts can be extremely demanding – both physically and emotionally, sometimes leading healthcare professionals towards drugs or alcohol. Those who become addicted live in fear of being caught and facing devastating consequences such as, loss of employment, license, legal issues, arrest, jail time, and worst of all their life.
You support the healthcare professional but you need a knowledgeable partner to deliver a unique patient experience and create an innovative curriculum to ensure successful recovery, and above all, provide the continuous communication that is paramount to the patient and everyone who has an interest in the patient’s long-term and meaningful recovery. We’re here for you.
Communication Through Recovery and Beyond
Our Concierge Communication Program works with Peer Assistance Programs to enhance the treatment of our Healthcare Professionals Program. We provide continual communication, for up to three years, to all parties involved with the patient’s treatment and recovery, including:
Employers | Legal Officials | Licensing Boards | Judicial Officials
This ensures everyone can successfully advocate for the patient and provide proper care – so the patient is ready to return to their professional and personal life.
As a trusted provider, the RCA Healthcare Professionals Program provides solutions to treat nurses, pharmacists, and physicians struggling with addiction. We help them return to employment, maintain their license, and advocate on the patients’ behalf to resolve all legal action.
