Illinois Professionals Health Program

The Illinois Professionals Health Program (IPHP) is a confidential program that aids physicians with problems related to alcohol and drug abuse, psychiatric disability, dual diagnosis, physical disabilities, problems of aging, sexual misconduct, and the stress of everyday medical practice.

Initially developed by and offered through the Illinois State Medical Society, IPHP is now an independent LLC, and has no disciplinary authority. It is strictly an advocacy group for physicians and those concerned about them. All participant-related information is kept completely confidential and is protected by Illinois state law. 

IPHP maintains a 24-hour Help Line (1.800.215.4357) for physicians to call when troubled or seeking help in a crisis situation.
