There are many ways that NHP may help you, from providing resources to developing and supporting you through a treatment and monitoring plan.
The program length will vary depending on your needs. Determining how long you are in the program is based on best practices of what is needed to support effective treatment and recovery from substance use and/or mental health disorders.
If you are practicing at the time of enrolment you may continue working unless NHP identifies potential risk to safe practice and you have been advised by NHP not to work. Should this happen, your case manager will discuss why you can’t work and how you will be able to return to practice.
The cost will vary depending on your needs. Your case manager will explain specific costs and how they are covered. You will not be charged for the NHP case management services and/or any independent medical examinations requested by the program.
Your employer can contact NHP directly to learn more about the program.
If you are experiencing a crisis, please contact 911, your local crisis line, or go to your local hospital for assistance. Once your crisis has been addressed, your case manager will assist you in accessing resources you may need.
