Author information

  • 1Division of Data and Statistics, Caduceus Foundation, Atlanta, GA.


Of 100 physicians who entered into a continuing care contract during a five-year period with the Impaired Physicians Program of the Medical Association of Georgia, seventy-seven have maintained documentable abstinence from all mood-altering substances. One physician was lost to follow-up. Twenty-two relapsed, eighteen of whom have undergone another treatment for chemical dependence. Only one physician in the relapse group has been involved in a pattern of chronic relapsing behavior.
