Health Professionals' Services Program - Administered by DHS, Addictions and Mental Health Division
History and Background
 
In accordance with 2009 House Bill 2345, the Board of Pharmacy Pharmacist Recovery Network (PRN) has been discontinued. A new program, the Health Professionals Services Program (HPSP), has been established by Department of Human Services, Addictions and Mental Health Division (AMH) to serve all health regulatory boards.   
 
The HPSP is a statewide, confidential monitoring program for health professional licensees who are unable to practice with professional skill and safety due to a substance use disorder, a mental health disorder, or both types of disorders. The program also helps professionals achieve their health and safety goals in order to remain productive members of their professions. The HPSP will provide compliance monitoring and reporting services for licensees.
 
Although any health professional regulatory board may participate in the new program, at this time, only Board of Dentistry, Board of Nursing, Board of Pharmacy, and Oregon Medical Board have opted to participate.
 
Administrative Rules:
Department of Human Services Administrative Rules - OAR 415-065
