The specter of addiction still remains a major issue in the anesthesia workplace, and each year 1–2 % of anesthesia care providers (ACPs) become addicted to the anesthetic agents they are tasked with administering to patients, leading some to ask: “Is addiction an occupational hazard for those involved in the practice of anesthesiology?” It has been reported that between 10 and 15 % of all ACPs will abuse drugs or alcohol at some point in their career, and education regarding the identification and effective treatment of the drug-impaired ACP is an essential part of the effort to reduce these numbers.
