Our Vision

All TXPHP participants will realize that substance use disorders and psychiatric illnesses, like many other diseases, are treatable conditions, and those who have completed acute treatment, continue ongoing treatment, and are appropriately monitored may have excellent outcomes and possess the ability to practice medicine in their field of expertise safely and effectively. This program strives to provide ‘Responsible Advocacy’ to participants by fostering a relationship of trust with participants and accountability to the Texas Medical Board, its advisory boards, and to the public.

Our Mission

The mission of the Texas Physician Health Program (TXPHP) is to protect the health of Texans and to promote medical excellence by serving participants affected by substance use disorders, physical illness and impairment, and/or psychiatric conditions. The TXPHP fulfills this mission by providing education, recognition, and assistance in diagnosis and treatment through a recovery program adapted and monitored according to participants’ specific needs.
