Ohio Alcohol And Substance Abuse Lawyers Representing Ohio Professionals
Alcoholism, substance abuse and other chemical addiction issues are common causes of disciplinary actions against professionals. No effect on the professional’s job performance is necessary for a Board to require the professional to take certain steps to keep his or her license.
The majority of our clients have never faced Board discipline. Most are good people and solid professionals who suffer from the disease of chemical dependency. We have helped many professionals with alcohol and drug issues with their respective licensing Boards. Tell us your story. Let us help.
