Welcome to the TNPAP Medication guide which is used to assist you for a safe and sustained recovery. This document was developed by Janet Hicks, D.P.h. the Director of Professional Programs at Cornerstone of Recovery in Louisville, TN and uses the same drug classification system developed nearly 20 years ago by Dr. Paul Earley at The Talbott Recovery Campus in Atlanta, GA.

This guide is only intended as a quick reference and never as a substitute for the advice of your own personal physician. It is essential that you inform all of your health care providers, including dentists and your pharmacist, of your chemical dependency history so that medications can be prescribed safely and appropriately when they are deemed necessary.  Never discontinue or make any sudden changes in the doses of medications without consulting the prescriber to avoid any adverse actions including withdrawal, which could be life-threatening.
