The Health Professional Recovery Program is a program that is administrated through Michigan LARA. It assists healthcare professionals who have substance use disorders or mental disorders with seeking recovery and treatment in a confidential and non-disciplinary process. The goal of the program is to support the recovery of participants so that they can safely practice again, before their impairment harms a patient or damages their careers.
