As a consultant psychiatrist you will already know a
good deal about addiction problems. This may only partly prepare
you when you encounter colleagues, be they junior, senior or
students, with substance misuse problems. You may also be at risk
of developing or relapsing into such difficulties yourself.
Dealing with colleagues with such problems is
complicated by the professional, legal and ethical aspects. This is
particularly so for doctors taking on a treatment role where such
issues are in tension with the doctor-patient relationship.
