Pharmacists Assisting Pharmacists of Arizona (PAPA)

is a program established pursuant to a provision in the Arizona Pharmacy Law under the administration of the Arizona Pharmacy Foundation. It was established to provide assistance to any pharmacist, pharmacy student, or pharmacy technician with an impairment. Though emphasis is on alcohol and/or chemical dependency, the program offers support or referrals to other needed programs. The PAPA program is designed to serve both a board-mandated participant (non-confidential) and a self-referred participant (confidential). 


PAPA is comprised of a volunteer steering committee and office staff. This committee reviews and acts on participant requests to ensure that all State Board requirements are met. 


PAPA participation includes: 

  • 5 year contract
  • Weekly peer counseling 
  • Random Urine Screens
  • Monitored twelve-step meetings
  • Semi-annual reviews 

If you or someone you care about is suffering from an alcohol or chemical dependency problem, PAPA is available for help and information.
