Toxicomania is more frequent in doctors and nurses than in any other profession. The treatment of a physician addicted to drugs is difficult for the therapist as his 'patient' will often know more about the problem than he does. A cure however can only be successful if the addicted physician is considered as a patient, to whom no short cuts in treatment can be allowed. The legal questions must be resolved; the type and frequency of monitoring for drugs are specified.
