A VETERINARY surgeon with a drink or drugs problem working in practice is an obvious threat to the well-being of the patients, the practice and him or herself. However, recognising the signs of such a problem can be difficult. In this article, James Willis, himself a recovering alcoholic, describes through his own experiences, how such a situation might arise, possible addictive behaviour that may help to identify the problem, and how to go about getting help, either for yourself or for a colleague you are concerned about.
