Physician Rehabilitation Overview

Pacific Assistance Group believes that one size does not fit all. This is why we utilize detailed criteria to establish client risk and to determine exactly what level of monitoring is needed to help and support the participant in recovery from substance use problems, other compulsive/addictive behaviors, or mental health issues. Below is an example of what we look for in assessing monitoring needs:

High Risk – Intensive Monitoring

  • New to monitoring
  • Not yet in recovery
  • Not receiving any mental health-related help
  • No record of abstinence or stability
  • Isolated, poor or no support systems in place
  • External motivation for cooperation
  • use, or other compulsive/addictive behaviors
  • Regular, active participation in self-help groups
  • Internal motivation for cooperation has begun Remission

Lower Risk

  • 12 – 36 months full cooperation
  • Stable in recovery or mental health treatment
  • Self-motivated in recovery
  • Improving quality of life
  • Substantially reduced practice risk


  • Stable in all areas of monitoring while requiring ongoing monitoring

California Physicians deserve and need competent, comprehensive and caring support and monitoring of their recovery from alcohol and drug problems. We are here to help the doctor, employer, hospital and family with the recovery process. Call us for a confidential discussion of your situation.
