I am sure everyone knows that substance abuse among pharmacists is fairly high, and if not now you do! At any rate, does anyone else find it moderately amusing that the the treatment initials for the program are PRN (pharmacists recovery network)? Could just be my odd sense of humor working overtime, but I kinda thought that was funny :/

The health professions attract addictive personalities. I know of an anesthesiologist who had a 15 minute fentanyl habit.
