The Kentucky Professionals Recovery Network-KYPRN, incorporated under Brian Fingerson, Inc, is a
free-standing organization that helps to monitor both those clients known to the Board of Pharmacy
and those who are not known by the Board, as well as provide a network of folks in recovery throughout
the state. There is also a Board-appointed Pharmacist Recovery Network Committee (PRNC) that
reviews cases prior to a person appearing before the Board for license action. 

We utilize substance abuse treatment professionals with intervention, treatment, and aftercare of clients. 
The executive director, Brian Fingerson, RPh, (a part-time paid position) serves as the liaison between the two.

This program is funded by a $10 per license per year fee.

We currently work with pharmacists, Student Pharmacists with a Board-issued intern card, and Technicians
