Substance abuse and addiction among anesthesiologists exists during whole history of this profession but is still purely understood. This issue is multifactorial and consists with professional and non-professional aspects. Addictive doctors must be treated in special centers in which the diagnosis, treatment and monitoring is based on careful individual attention. Professional rehabilitation is difficult because risk of relapse is high. Decision about the reentering of anesthesiologists in the workplace should be made on a case-by-case basis.
