Ahhhh....yes...anonymity....just like having meeting logs signed. Adding more to the heap of absurd, intrusive, punitive hypocrisy based on junk science and religious mumbo jumbo...at best.
I'll echo...5 yrs here...not work related...hypocrisy and incompetence run rampant...oh yeah...did I mention I could "possibly" be "released" early as long as I see their snake oil salseman...sorry...I mean "addiction specialist" for a nominal fee! No thanks I intend to finish this abomination out of spite.
Ok, for starters, my initial post was not bellyaching about the drug screen costs etc. It was just a question posed out of curiosity. The bit about being called 4 times in the space of one week was perfectly justified. What exactly does anyone expect to change in say 24-48 hours?
Sorry, i don't consider this crap to be a "gift." It is no gift to lose my entire savings, be run through the mill of a farce of treatment for a problem i don't have and to have the problems i do have be completely ignored.
I have had occurrences where certain individuals associated with this program have straight up lied, screamed at me and caused a fantastic job offer to go down in flames. So yes, i have every reason to be disgusted. I long ago resigned myself to having to do this garbage but I will never, ever consider it to be any kind of gift. or consider it to have done anything positive for my mental health or my career.
If you are grateful for this, than by all means, be so. i don't know your situation and you don't know mine, but know this...I will come out of this a better, stronger person and nurse but it will be no thanks to this experience. Yes, my disgust still stands. Disgust and resentment are not synonyms.

Cynical or not...here goes...you (most likely) now will become a number that will spend thousands of dollars to P in a cup as you enrich the for profit P/Rehab industrial complex based on psuedo religious junk science all in the name of "protecting the public." You will (most likely) do this and endure the illogical disruption of your human dignity because you worked so hard for your license...good luck.
Unions unions unions!
Like medical diagnosis the 'issue" is multi-faceted...what works for one may not for another...so why not reign in the rhetoric? The rampant hypocrisy does exist and does ruin people's lives.
Its 100% up to the "corporation" to "staff adequately"...I know...its almost as if those words have zero meaning in our current (for-profit) climate...if I can (and I do because I live in america and I need money) pick up extra I do...if I cannot then it certainly is not my problem...ride the HCAPS till they crumble!!! Good luck.
