My spouse entered treatment. Should I contact the medical board?

If you, your spouse or loved one has entered inpatient residential or outpatient treatment for a substance use or psychiatric disorder, you do not need to contact the Georgia Composite Medical Board. By contacting the Georgia PHP, you are able to keep treatment confidential and at the same time protect your Georgia medical license.

As long as you or your loved one is maintained in a PHP-approved treatment process, you do not need to make a subsequent report to the Georgia Composite Medical Board. If your case becomes known to the Georgia Composite Medical Board at some later date (because a colleague or other concerned individual calls the board), the medical board may contact us. We will then, in turn, let you know about this contact and reassure the Georgia Composite Medical Board of your (or your loved one's) compliance with treatment. Only in rare cases will the Georgia Composite Medical Board need to know about your situation.
