Recovery needs are re-evaluated periodically to adjust to changes that occur in the recovery process. The program will provide assistance and monitoring during the period of practice re-entry. Key components of the monitoring agreement may include: random urine screenings, attendance at aftercare, 12-step support groups or professional support groups and psychotherapy if indicated.
The program is available to all licensed dentists and dental hygienists in the state. Confidentiality is maintained for all participants. The MDA Mission Statement is “Helping All Members Succeed.” Experiencing wellness is a key part of this success, as is recovering from substance abuse and mental health issues.
