Drug Monitoring Programs

Chemical Dependency Discipline Program (CDDP)

The CDDP is a disciplinary program for a nurse whose competency may be impaired because of the use of drugs and/or alcohol and is not eligible for the Alternative Program for Chemical Dependency. Participation in the CDDP is public information. Documents are posted on the Board of Nursing's licensure verification system which further describes the specific case.

Objectives of CDDP include the following:

  1. To ensure the health, safety and welfare of the public through a program that closely monitors nurses impaired by drugs and/or alcohol.
  2. Provide a process for nurses to recover from impairment and become safe practitioners.
