Our Mission:

RPP is committed to the protection of the public’s safety through the early identification of impaired health professionals who are in need of assistance and the return to safe practice through appropriate referral and effective monitoring, rehabilitation and recovery.


Our Goal:

RPP is a confidential referral and monitoring program designed for physicians, nurses, pharmacists, dentists and other licensed health professionals in South Carolina with alcohol or substance use disorders or dual diagnosis of addiction and mental illness. The program offers an effective way to ensure that impaired professionals receive the help they need as quickly as possible.

The ultimate goal of the program is to help the professional 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.

An alternative to the board disciplinary process, operating independently from both boards and associations, RPP provides accountable, consistent and confidential monitoring for both voluntary and board-referred participants to ensure the safe practice of health professionals in South Carolina.


Our Philosophy:

Our primary concern at RPP is to assist the health professional to return to safe practice. The program recognizes that substance abuse/dependence, as well as dual diagnoses of substance abuse/dependence and mental illness, are treatable diseases.

RPP promotes the fact that appropriate and effective treatment is essential to save a health professional’s life. RPP also works to provide an opportunity to save the professional’s license and career.
