Dedicated to Saving Lives & Careers

KPHF is here to help.

Who We Are


The Kentucky Physicians Health Foundation is a 501(c)(3), whose mission is the identification, evaluation, treatment, reentry and advocacy for professionals licensed by the Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure. We provide support for physicians, physician's assistants, surgical technicians, genetic counselors and athletic trainers.

Call Us First


We can provide the initial evaluation, assessment, testing, coordination and post treatment monitoring for licensed medical professionals who are struggling with substance use disorder, mental and emotional health issues and distress/burnout.

Let Us Help


Ease of access to addictive substances and the unique stresses inherent to our profession, can make medical professionals particularly vulnerable to substance use disorder and mental health issues. Worry about stigma can make one think twice before seeking help. We recognize the unique challenges of treating these issues in our profession.

Earlier Intervention Leads to Better Outcomes
Over the years, we have counseled more than 1,800 healthcare professionals, and our participants have achieved a notably high rate of success. Since 1976, approximately 4 out of 5 participants who have completed treatment and aftercare requirements have gone on to lead successful careers.
