    • State: Pennsylvania
    • Substance Abuse  (12/22/2003)
    • Action Taken: Surrender
    • Summary: Dr. Robert Anthony Barber, Lic #2003-00222


      When applying for a license in North Carolina in 2003, Dr. Barber reported he had signed a contract with the NCPHP to continue his treatment for alcoholism and drug addiction and that he had been sober since August 1999.

      In November 2003, Dr. Barber was involuntarily committed to a hospital following an unusual episode involving a reaction to an overdose of dextromethorphan, an over-the-counter medication found in cough syrup. Police found him nude, with multiple cuts on his arms, and transported him to the local ER. While in the ER, he had a positive drug test, but the results of that test later proved to be false.

      He was committed to the psychiatric unit out of concern for himself and others. He was released from the involuntary commitment order two days later when it was found he was not suffering from any psychosis. He stayed in the hospital on a voluntary basis.

      He reported to the NCPHP for further testing and for assessment at a drug treatment facility. Drug tests were negative, and the facility opined Dr. Barber likely had a psychotic reaction to a higher than recommended dose of dextromethorphan.

      Dr. Barber relinquished his license pending an investigation or in lieu of disciplinary action.


      Voluntary surrender of license

      08/25/04: Consent Order for License Reinstatement

      The NCPHP and the treatment facility believe Dr. Barber is abstinent. It was determined that, given his history, he must be more aware of the potential adverse effects of self-medicating. He has signed a contract with the NCPHP and is reported to be compliant with that contract.

      Dr. Barber’s license is reissued to expire on 01/31/05, with the following conditions

      1. Unless lawfully prescribed by someone other than himself, he shall refrain from mind- or mood-altering substances and alcohol
      2. At the Board’s request, he shall provide bodily fluid or tissue for drug and alcohol testing
      3. He shall maintain and abide by his NCPHP contract
      4. He must comply with other conditions.
