The South Carolina Recovering Professional Program (SCRPP) is proud to announce an expanded scope of services, additional options for peer support meetings, and a new full-time medical director/MRO.
RPP Now Welcomes Referrals for Mental Health and/or Behavioral Concerns
Although RPP has historically accepted referrals and provided monitoring for participants diagnosed with a substance use disorder or co-occurring condition, RPP now welcomes referrals for intake and/or initial assessment of healthcare professionals for whom there is a concern of mental health or behavioral condition or disorder to include depression, anxiety, job-related burnout, professional sexual misconduct, or any other condition which can interfere with, or impede, the ability to safely and effectively treat patients.
Recovery Meeting Participation
SCRPP Participants may now attend expanded recovery meetings that will count towards a participant’s weekly individualized meeting requirements. These include Celebrate Recovery, Smart Recovery and Refuge Recovery. SCRPP is also looking at the potential inclusion of additional meetings that may also count towards weekly requirements. For information on meeting participation, please contact your Recovery Specialist at RPP.
