Walter is a senior specialist with teaching hospital commitments. His practice manager referred him to VDHP after receiving several reports of him presenting at work with signs of alcohol consumption. At assessment it was clear that Walter had a serious problem with alcohol dependency. His family life was in turmoil, and his adult children were extremely worried about him as he was becoming increasingly isolated. Walter was referred for inpatient treatment at a specialist alcohol and drug facility. Following discharge, he agreed to become a CAMP participant. The VDHP then helped facilitate his re-entry to work. Walter has complied with all of his treatment and monitoring requirements. His family life has been restored, and he is back enjoying work. He recently celebrated one year of recovery.
