The Ohio Board of Nursing’s Alternative Program for Chemical Dependency (Alternative Program) is a non-disciplinary, non-public monitoring program for licensees or certificate holders who are chemically dependent or substance abuse issues.
The Ohio Board of Nursing established The Alternative Program under Section 4723.35 of the Ohio Revised Code and Chapter 4723-6 of the Ohio Administrative Code. The laws and rules allow the Ohio Board of Nursing to abstain from taking disciplinary action against licensees and certificate holders who are found eligible for, and successfully complete, the Alternative Program. In addition to recognizing that chemical dependency is a disease, the Alternative Program was also developed to protect the public by encouraging early intervention and treatment for chemically dependent individuals.
If you have questions concerning disciplinary actions by the Ohio Board of Nursing or the Alternative Program, please contact Eric Jones at the Jones Law Group, LLC at (614) 545-9998 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
