People in New-Wes-Valley want their community doctor back, even though he used to abuse drugs and alcohol. Dr. Stephen Darcy received treatment for his abuse problem after his employer reported him to the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Newfoundland and Labrador. He lost his licence in 2009, but Friday, the regulatory body decided to reinstate it after Darcy convinced the organization that he is no longer abusing drugs or alcohol, and is not a risk to patients.
