About Us


The mission of the Kentucky Physicians Health Foundation is to help professionals licensed by the Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure who are impacted by substance use disorder, mental and emotional health issues and distress.

Additionally, the Foundation serves as a key resource for education on addiction and House Bill 1, the landmark legislation which mandates a host of regulations related to the prescribing of controlled substances.

While we are not a component of the Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure, we are officially listed as their designated consultant and are currently advocating in all areas where physician advocacy is indicated and required.



We routinely provide educational activities throughout the state of Kentucky for affected/interested audiences. Topics include: Addiction Treatment and Prescribing Controlled Substances, including the implications of House Bill 1, How to Look For and Diagnose Substance Use Disorder, and Distressed Physicians.

If you are interested in more information, please contact our office.
