The Bureau of Professional Licensure Impaired Practitioner Program (IPP) was established in 1996 to support licensees who struggle with problems of alcohol or drug abuse, mental illness, or physical disorders. The IPP is a confidential program designed to assist professionals licensed by boards within professional licensure to establish and monitor a treatment/recovery program and the continuing eligibility of licensees who are regulated by those boards.
