AUSTRALIAN DOCTORS IN RECOVERY

CONFIDENTIAL HELPLINE

FOR

DOCTORS WITH ALCOHOL OR DRUG PROBLEMS

WE UNDERSTAND! 

AUSTRALIAN DOCTORS IN RECOVERY’  IS A GROUP OF DOCTORS WHO ARE IN RECOVERY FROM ALCOHOL OR OTHER DRUG PROBLEMS.

WE HAVE SUFFERED INDIVIDUALLY, AS HAVE OUR FAMILIES; FOR MANY OF US OUR PROFESSIONAL LIVES HAVE BEEN AFFECTED, INCURRING PROBLEMS WITH OUR MEDICAL REGISTRATION.

WE UNDERSTAND THE IMPACT OF ADDICTION ON OUR LIVES – INCLUDING THE SHAME, GUILT AND SECRECY OF OUR PROBLEM.

WE ALSO UNDERSTAND THE REWARDS THAT RECOVERY BRINGS TO OURSELVES AND OUR FAMILIES. MOST OF US HAVE RESUMED OUR CAREERS AND ARE ENJOYING NORMAL PRODUCTIVE LIVES.

WE ARE ABSOLUTELY CONFIDENTIAL. 

WE ARE NOT CONNECTED TO ANY OTHER ORGANISATION. OUR PRIMARY PURPOSE IS TO MAINTAIN OUR OWN RECOVERY, AND TO HELP OTHER ADDICTED DOCTORS TO ACHIEVE RECOVERY. 

IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM, WE UNDERSTAND
