    Ramifications of Florida Statutes Section §456.0635, F.S

    §456.0635, F.S requires that DOH Boards refuse to approve a new license application or refuse to approve a license renewal application of any candidate who has been convicted of or entered a plea of guilty or nolo contendere, regardless of adjudication, a felony under chapter 409, chapter 817, or chapter 893, or a similar felony offense committed in another state or jurisdiction, unless the sentence and any subsequent period of probation for such conviction or plea ended more than 15 years before the application date for felonies of the first or second degree, more than 10 years before the date of application for third degree felonies, except those under 893.13 (6)(a), or more than 5 years for felonies of the third degree under 893.13(6)(a). For healthcare professionals with a history of addiction to controlled drugs who have been prosecuted for obtaining and/or possessing controlled drugs for their personal use prior to entering treatment and recovery from addiction, this law often results in the professional losing or being unable to obtain or renew his/ her license for many years, even after the professional has been successfully rehabilitated and has been participating successfully in one of Florida’s approved programs for impaired professionals (Professionals Resource Network [PRN] or Intervention Project for Nurses [IPN]). This panel, composed of experienced health law attorneys, will explore this law, its implications, and the efforts to overturn or modify it to recognize the value of treatment and recovery for healthcare professionals in Florida.

    Substance Use and Psychological Distress Among Medical Students in the State of Florida

    Physicians and physician trainees appear to be at increased risk for depression, burnout, substance use disorders, and suicide. Studies have demonstrated that medical training is associated with increased stressors and associated psychological distress. In order to assess the well-being of medical students in Florida, an anonymous online survey was administered to students at all nine medical schools in the state. Over 1,000 students responded to the survey, providing insight into their medical school experience. In this workshop, results of the survey will be presented and discussed in context. For example, results of the Florida medical student survey demonstrated high levels of distress, with 80% of students reporting their stress level as "significant" or "severe." About 60% of students reported that their psychological health had worsened since beginning medical school, with female students at greater risk (X2 = 12.39, p = .05). In addition, over 10% of students (n = 102) endorsed "thoughts of committing suicide" during medical school. About 70% of students acknowledged frequent binge drinking after exams, with male students engaging in this behavior more often than female students (48% vs. 35%; X2 = 13.90, p = .003). Almost 7% of medical students reported believing they might have an alcohol use disorder. Further, 23% of medical students reported using marijuana during medical school, with higher rates among male students (27% vs. 19%; X2 = 9.50, p = .02). Non-medical use of prescription stimulants was endorsed by 18% of medical students, primarily "to help study." Some students also reported continued use of illicit drugs during medical school. About 2% of students expressed concern that they might have a drug use disorder. Despite these concerning results, steps can be taken to improve medical student wellness and promote the development of resilient physicians who are better prepared to care for themselves and their patients in the future. The impact of various wellness initiatives will be discussed.

    Essentials of Drug Testing in Addiction Medicine
    This purpose of this workshop is to review the essentials of, and discuss the latest in, drug testing in addiction medicine. We will review the scientific basis of immunoassay-based and liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry-based drug testing techniques; describe the "differential diagnosis" of presumptive positive and presumptive negative drug screening results; and describe a rational strategy for determining when screening results should undergo confirmatory testing. Finally, we will review the temporal limitations of analyte detection in oral fluid, urine, and hair, and how testing of these biological matrices can be integrated to answer specific questions in addiction medicine.

    Relationship Attachments and Addiction Recovery
    Addictions are not only a medical issue, it is also a relational issue. Addictions, seen through the prism of a bonding disorder, enriches and enhances one's recovery through loving and connected relationships. This session focuses on the three drives of humans and how our failure to bond and attach lends itself towards addiction. A focus on the Relationship Road Map and the core emotional needs humans carry will be discussed in light of the addictions.

    Relationship Repair Using the Social Atom

    Jacob Moreno, the founder of psychodrama, an action oriented method of therapy believed that each of us is the "nucleus" of our own social atom; the network of relationships that surround an individual. Substance use has a devastating impact on these relationships and their ability to connect meaningfully with others. As the addictive behavior continues, relationships deteriorate further and they become increasingly isolated. Using the social atom and putting it into action through family sculpting can be a powerful tool to begin relationship repair and healing. In this workshop, participants will have the opportunity to diagram their own social atom to gain insight into their personal relationships. Following this, participants will explore a family sculpture in action. Participants will learn how the psychodramatic techniques increase empathy and promote healing.
