A good nurse should not be lost to a treatable disease

Nurses and healthcare professionals

are trained and experienced in the art and science of caring.

Yet like anyone else, they can be
  • challenged by alcoholism, drug dependency and diversion
  • afraid to reveal their problems, or suddenly confronted by them
  • silenced by stigma
This groundbreaking treatment program helps the individual
  • Recognize the problem
  • Regain health, self-respect and family
  • Get back to the job that took so much hard work to achieve
  • Retain licensing and professional accreditation
Nurses Lifeline is the only program that is national in scope, for those seeking an addiction treatment program designed just for this group.

Nurses Lifeline is specifically designed to meet the medical, cultural and personal needs of the nurse with a chemical dependency. This includes RNs, PHNs, LPNs, CNAs and Nurse Practitioners.*

Collaborative relationships with professional monitoring programs such as PNAP (Pennsylvania Nurses Peer Assistance), PHMP (Pennsylvania Health Monitoring Program) and SARPH (Secundum Atrem Reaching Pharmacists with Help) help the patient renew the stability of her professional trajectory. (An individual does not have to be enrolled or registered with any such agency.)

Nurses Lifeline offers treatment for addictions to:
  • alcohol
  • illegal drugs (marijuana, cocaine, heroin, etc.)
  • and a range of substances open to "diversion," including but not limited to: Percocet, Dilaudid, Oxycodone, Ativan, Xanax, Klonopin, OxyContin, Duragesic patches, Demerol, Phenobarbital, morphine, hydrocodone and fentanyl
Nurses Lifeline is available exclusively at Livengrin Foundation, a nonprofit treatment center in Bensalem, PA (outside Philadelphia). Founded in 1966, Livengrin provides a complete range of services for alcoholism and drug dependency, at a wooded rehab campus and six outpatient locations throughout the region. More than 120,000 people have come through its doors to begin a journey to recovery.

*Pharmacists, physicians, dentists and other healthcare professionals are also welcome to the Foundation’s services.
