Welcome to the South Carolina Recovering Professional Program

RPP is a confidential referral and monitoring program designed for physicians, nurses, pharmacists, dentists and podiatrists in South Carolina who are experiencing problems related to alcohol and/or other drug abuse or dependence, or from a dual diagnosis of addiction and mental illness. The program ensures that impaired professionals receive the help they need at the earliest point possible.

RPP is committed to assisting the health professional to return to safe practice -- a decision that benefits the individual, the profession and society at large -- by ensuring that the professional complies with an established treatment protocol and appropriate continuing care. RPP emphasizes confidentiality, education and opportunity, while treating the professional with compassion, dignity and respect throughout the process of recovery.

RPP, which operates under a contract between LRADAC and the South Carolina Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation, is the approved monitoring program for licensees of the South Carolina Boards of Medical Examiners, Nursing, Pharmacy, Dentistry, Podiatry Examiners, Chiropractors, Counselors, Occupational Therapy, Optometry, Physical Therapy, Psychology, Social Workers, Speech Therapy & Audiology, and Veterinary.
