CONCORD, N.H. (AP) – The state has suspended a Nashua osteopathic doctor’s license to practice for one year, the third disciplinary action against him in the past year.

The board first suspended Dr. Jason Henderson’s license for six months from Nov. 1, 2003 and suspended it again in May after finding that he posed “an imminent threat to life, safety, and/or health.”

Henderson tested positive for use of alcohol on April 1, in violation of the terms of the six-month license suspension, according to the order by the Board of Medicine.

The board also ordered him to continue to receive alcohol and drug treatment at his own expense and participate for at least five years in the New Hampshire Physician Health Program, taking random drug tests and undergoing counseling for substance abuse.

The order also stipulates that should Henderson relocate to another state, he must enroll in a similar program and continue to comply with the New Hampshire program’s requirements.

According to the agreement, Henderson may petition the board to restore his license 11 months after the suspension. For one year after the suspension ends, Henderson’s license will be restricted, requiring him to take random drug and alcohol tests in the workplace.
