How do I enroll in the Georgia PHP?

0

The first step in enrolling with the Georgia PHP is to request an enrollment packet. We suggest you email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to obtain this packet. If you have questions that this website does not answer, please feel free to email us or call us at 855-myGA PHP (855-694-2747).

There are three types of individuals who should join the Georgia PHP:

  1. Individuals who have a newly diagnosed substance related disorder and its related conditions.
  2. Individuals who are under current the Georgia Medical Board or Georgia Veterinary Board consent order-based monitoring system managed by a private treatment center.
  3. Individuals who are in another state who would like to practice in Georgia and have a known substance related disorder and current monitoring program in their home state.

To ensure that you are appropriate candidate for the Georgia PHP, we will require records of your past treatment, if any. If we determine that you need assessment or initial treatment, we will enroll you while you are obtaining evaluation and/or treatment.

Once you have completed the necessary paperwork, some individuals may need to be seen by our clinical staff prior to enrollment. Other individuals may be scheduled to see our clinical staff sometime after their enrollment. You will then sign up with our monitoring agency for drug screening and behavioral monitoring (tracking your self-help group and therapy attendance).

Depending on where you are in your recovery process, we will assign you to a caduceus group and/or a small group therapy. Many of our participants are directed towards individual or family therapy as well.

If you enroll with the Georgia PHP, you need not report your loved one or yourself to the medical board or veterinary board in Georgia.
