This Act provides for methods of enforcing licensing law provisions for various specialties by the Georgia Composite Board of Professional Counselors, Social Workers, and Marriage and Family Therapists (Board). The Act requires licensees governed by this Code Section to submit to mental and physical examinations if the Board reasonably believes that the licensee is unable to practice his or her specialty with reasonable skill and safety to the public due to illness or substance abuse. The Act also allows the Board to obtain all records relating to any such incapacitation. If the licensee fails either to submit to an examination or to provide such records, the Board may summarily suspend that licensee's license if the circumstances require such action. hmtl
