The West Virginia Pharmacist Recovery Network also known as the WVPRN is a peer run, non-profit pharmacy (501c3) organization dedicated to the identification, treatment, monitoring and support of pharmacy personnel impaired by medications, alcohol or psychiatric disorders.

The purpose of the WVPRN is to accomplish the following:

Identify individuals who may be impaired by alcohol, drugs or a psychiatric disorder before patients, pharmacist or families are hurt and before the state Board of Pharmacy must intervene.Evaluate the individual’s nature and severity of impairment.Provide complete confidentiality while providing a contract, a treatment plan, and a monitoring plan.Provide a support network to allow pharmacy personnel to continue their career in pharmacy as much as possible. Protect the public, family and friends from potential dangers and the destruction of relationships that may occur when a pharmacist is chemically or psychiatrically impaired. Provide hope and assistance to any pharmacy personnel in achieving a productive and successful recovery.
