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 Harvey Watt’s Medical Director, 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 Department 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 abuse and return to flying. Our medical consultants are HIMS, AME, and SAP trained, and our staff includes the retired Federal Flight Surgeon and retired Chief of the FAA Medical Certification Division. 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 program is FAA-compliant, then we implement and document the plan through completion.
