Who Can Help?
The Missouri Physicians Health Program (MPHP) 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, treatment referral, long-term monitoring and advocacy. It is available to all Missouri physicians, physicians in training, and medical students.
The MPHP is legally and financially independent of licensure and regulatory agencies such as the BHA, BNDD and DEA. They are funded through participants and donors like medical staff organizations, hospital administrations, component medical societies, insurance companies and universities. Financial independence means objectivity and freedom to act in the participant's best interest.
