The Stan Sateren, MD and Linda Stoer-Scaggs, PhD Family Healing and Support Fund is availble through OPHP to encourage and assist families who might otherwise not be financially able to participate in the “family program” of the treatment process. Family programs provide education, counseling, and other support addressing family member's needs in addition to strengthening the support system of OPHP participants. Additionally, funds will also be available to assist in the event of financial crises in the absence of the healthcare professional. This Fund recognizes the importance of the family in recovery, health, and wellbeing.
The Family Healing and Support Fund was established by Stan Sateren, M.D., past President and Medical Director of OPHP and wife, Linda Stoer-Scaggs, Ph.D. They both believe that "family support plays a significant role for individuals recovering from diseases of addiction and other illnesses". Both Dr. Sateren and Dr. Stoer-Scaggs have devoted much of their lives supporting the health and wellbeing of healthcare professionals and their families. They established this fund as an expression of their passion and as a team devoted to sustaining and enriching the health and wellbeing of healthcare professionals and their families.
