The State of Michigan’s Health Professionals Recovery Program (HPRP) was established in 1994 by legislation. This program is administered through a contract with the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, Bureau of Professional Licensing and is supported by various health professional licensing boards and the associations and societies of the health professions in the State. The HPRP supports the recovery of its participants so they may safely return to practice and protect the safety of the general public.
To protect the public and support the health professional in recovery.
Treat, benefit and protect the licensee, the general public and the community.
To treat all stakeholders involved with the HPRP with respect. To be objective in all monitoring decisions with the long-term goal of providing value to health professionals, the public, employers, treatment providers, and participant's friends and family.
HPRP, I thank you for all the support and requirements set forth in the last 3 years; it has changed my life for the better. I have never felt better or have been more content and accepting of life in general, with all the joys and sadness that comes with it. Sobriety has become the most important aspect of my daily living. Without it, I have nothing.
With HPRP’s help I have kept my RN license and am still practicing the career that I have loved for 27 years.
I know that many people complain about the effects of the HPRP has on their lives, but I can honestly say that my life has been improved in the last 2 ½ years since starting the HPRP. I used to say, “I thought the party was over once I got sober, but I am now realizing that the party has just begun.”
Thank you HPRP for playing a role in my sobriety and giving me the opportunity to learn things about myself that I wouldn’t have if I wasn’t in the HPRP.
On the 31st, it will be 5 months…Thank you HPRP for being my cheerleader.
I am so grateful to the HPRP for providing a way to help health professionals maintain a program of recovery and be able to safely practice our profession. This program and the support that I have found through this program has encouraged me to remain clean and sober for the last 5 years.
