This organization is funded by physician license fees, and is sitting on $4.6M in assets, including $3.0M in stocks. The Medical Director is paid $257K/yr. In one year, 9 (yes, that's NINE) individuals received financial aid for evaluation or treatment. - A skeptical physician

WPHP says they help physicians but that's a lie. You go to them for help and they smile and say they are going to help and then send you go to a rehab facility of their choosing for evaluation for a couple weeks but really it's indefinite and can turn into MONTHS. You are required to pay for it and all treatments/medications you are prescribed and then sign a 5 year contract with them consenting to random weekly drug tests. If you refuse any of this or their services they threaten that they WILL report you to the medical board and you WILL lose your license to practice. Don't ever trust a PHP program. It's unchecked and with no oversight and will squeeze you for thousands of dollars a year while holding a gun to your head. WPHP is a FOR PROFIT all the way.
