2012 PRN Fall Seminar Scheduled for October 20, 2012
The Professional Recovery Network is a nationally recognized peer assistance program founded by Texas Pharmacy Association in 1981 to help pharmacy professionals with personal problems that may harm their ability to practice in a safe and competent manner. These problems include emotional distress and substance abuse. In 2003, TPA began providing services to dental professionals. PRN has recently contracted with the Texas State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners and the Texas Optometry Board to provide the same services to licensed veterinarians and optometrists in Texas.
PRN's goal is help participants to get the assistance they need, and support their recovery so they can remain employed in their profession. As long as participants comply with the Recovery Support Agreement, their participation in the program is confidential.
The confidential 24-hour helpline number is 800-727-5152 (calls made after 5 p.m. will be returned the next business morning). An after-hours number is available in case of emergencies: 512-496-7247.
"The PRN program is an opportunity for individuals to face challenges in their life head-on and come out even stronger in the end. It’s a chance for professionals to reclaim a life they’ve worked so hard to build."
Courtney Bolin, LMSW
