Chemical Dependency Discipline Program (CDDP)
The mission of the North Carolina Board of Nursing Drug Monitoring Programs is to protect the public by providing a structured approach to monitoring and returning the recovering chemically dependent nurse to safe nursing practice.
The Chemical Dependency Discipline Program 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 Chemical Dependency Discipline Program is public information. Documents are posted on the Board of Nursing's licensure verification system which further describes the specific case.
Objectives of Chemical Dependency Discipline Program include the following:
- To ensure the health, safety and welfare of the public through a program that closely monitors nurses impaired by drugs and/or alcohol.
- Provide a process for nurses to recover from impairment and become safe practitioners.
