What is HPMP

Virginia HPMP is Here to Help.

In short, the Virginia Health Practitioners’ Monitoring Program (HPMP) is a solution that can help recovering licensed healthcare professionals struggling with substance use addiction, mental health disorders, or physical ailments get back on track to protect their health and their careers.

Roadmap to Success graphic

HPMP is a recovery monitoring program.  We provide referrals for appropriate treatment and provide ongoing support and monitoring of the treatment progress.  Our goal is for you to achieve and maintain optimal physical, mental, and emotional health in order to promote self health, and patient safety.

The HPMP team has the expertise to help participants skillfully navigate their return to safe and productive clinical practice and stay in their chosen careers.  Monitoring and support contributes to our program’s high successful completion rate.

In addition to treatment, monitoring is key for relapse prevention – monitoring helps set short-term goals and creates an extra level of accountability.  It is vital that participants get support and assistance to avoid relapse - we can provide a roadmap for a successful completion.

Participation in the program is voluntary. Individuals who recognize that they are struggling can sign up for this program on their own.  Disciplinary action may be avoided and, in the absence of criminal behavioral or Board action, public records may not be generated.

HPMP services are available to anyone who holds a current, active license, certification or registration by a health regulatory board in Virginia or a multi-state licensure privilege, or is an applicant for initial or reinstatement of licensure, certification, or registration for up to one year from the date of receipt of their application.

If you or someone you know could use the assistance of HPMP and would like to get started, or have questions, contact the Virginia HPMP toll-free at 1-866-206-4747 or email
