Dentists Support Program

Assistance Program Provides Lifeline to Dentists in Need

Alone, scared, and hopeless, such feelings of despair can grip dentists who are struggling with addiction. Oftentimes they feel there is nowhere to turn. Yet with the help of a little known program offered through the ISDS Foundation, dentists can anonymously secure necessary help. The Dentists Support Program provides a referral system for dentists who are struggling with the problem of alcohol or substance abuse and are in need of treatment assistance.

With just one phone call, the dentist, family member, staff member, or friend can request help from the program. It is completely anonymous and takes just a couple of minutes.

24-hour confidential cell phone: 312/318-8810 or 708/287-4132. You may also contact Dr. Bill Hamel or Dr. Tom Sullivan for more information.
