 Ohio’s Pharmacists Recovery Network
       “Pharmacists helping Pharmacists”


The Pharmacists Rehabilitation Organization, Inc.  was Founded in 1984 by the Ohio Pharmacists Association
and the Ohio Society of Health-System Pharmacists, with the help and understanding of the Ohio State Board of Pharmacy.

Our mission: 1) To educate and inform the profession of pharmacy concerning chemical dependency 
                            as a treatable disease that affects from 10 - 15% of it’s members.
                     2) To help addicted pharmacists find recovery from their active disease.

The Pharmacists Rehabilitation Organization (P.R.O., Inc.) is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit and volunteer peer
assistance organization, that helps assess, refer to treatment and monitor pharmacists (and licensed pharmacy 
interns) with alcohol and/or drug dependencies. When deemed appropriate,  P.R.O. Inc. may also advocate
for the contracted client to a regulatory agency such as The Ohio State Board of Pharmacy.

ORGANIZATION’S BASIC BELIEFS: 
      • We recognizes that chemical dependency is a primary disease that is chronic, progressive 
         and potentially fatal and affects approximately 10 - 15% of all pharmacists.
      • We regard chemical dependency as a treatable disease and recognizes the right of our
          recovering colleague to return to the safe practice of Pharmacy when appropriate.
      • Our primary purpose is to assess, refer to proper treatment and monitor our colleagues
          impaired by the disease of chemical dependency.
      • We will advocate for our clients when appropriate and will also help coordinate 
          interventions of potential clients.
