GETTING A HEALTHCARE LICENSE AFTER AN ADDICTION

After recovering from an addiction, many people return to school, change careers and often want to get into the healthcare field.

I HAVE BEEN ACCUSED OF BEING IMPAIRED ON THE JOB WHAT SHOULD I DO?

In the past year, I have represented a dozen nurses and doctors who have been accused of being impaired on the job. Many of these clients have been on pain medication and anti-anxiety medication. Many healthcare professionals who suffer from chronic pain are being prescribed opiate medications. Often, depression and anxiety medication are prescribed as well. Because of concerns over the use of opiate medication leading to addiction, more and more pain management doctors are beginning to prescribe alternatives to opiates. Recently, I have seen many clients who are now being prescribed Neurontin (gabapentin) to manage their pain. Some clients are also being prescribed Amrix, a muscle relaxer.
