The Texas Legislature created the TXPHP as an independent, confidential program to serve physician, physician assistant, acupuncturist, and surgical assistant applicants and licensees affected by substance use disorders, physical illnesses and impairment, and/or psychiatric conditions.
TXPHP provides education, recognition, and assistance in diagnosis and treatment for participants through a recovery program adapted and monitored according to their specific needs.
Overseen by its own governing board of eleven members, it receives administrative assistance from the TMB. Click the following link for more information about its members: TXPHP Governing Board Member Biographies
