Substance Abuse Program

The Harvey Watt medical staff coordinates alcohol and chemical dependency cases enrolled in the FAA’s Human Intervention Motivational Study, known as HIMS. The HIMS program, created by one of Harvey Watt’s former Medical Director, Audie Davis, is the FAA’s occupational substance abuse treatment program pilots must follow. We have extensive experience with these cases, so we can advocate effectively and minimize recertification time. Our involvement with the HIMS Program sets us apart as the industry leader in preserving careers and enhancing air safety. 

Alcohol and Substance Abuse Experts

Harvey Watt is the industry expert in helping pilots recover from alcohol or substance dependency and return to flying. Our medical consultants are HIMS, AME, and Substance Abuse Professional trained, and our staff includes the former Federal Flight Surgeon. Our goal is to get the pilot back in the cockpit as quickly as possible.

Harvey Watt contracts with the employer or union and represents you, the pilot. We make sure pilots receive the treatment they need and help them do everything they can to return to flying. 

We are Active HIMS Partners

The HIMS Program is a three-tiered program encompassing the union, the employer, and the FAA. We liaise with pilots and representatives to establish and implement a treatment plan. Our hands-on approach includes coordinating the Program with industry managers, pilots, healthcare professionals, and the FAA. We ensure that the established plan is FAA-compliant, then we implement and document the plan through completion.
