    Are you not able to find work because of your past... or is it just bad luck on your part? I want to say that I'm glad that you were able to find help. I have had many friends and family members go through the same thing you have and mostly with good results... everything from alcohol to narcotics to whatever else you could imagine. Stay strong and sooner or later you will find a place to go. I am a big believer in rehabilitation and I for one don't look down on anyone who admits that they need help and accept it.

    Perhaps a little more info, within TOS and your comfort level to help us help you?

    Good luck to you. Moving to the NC site, where perhaps someone can advise you further.

    What is the alternative program? Can't they help you find placement in a new job?

    wow.... That's crazy that they treat you but then when you're better they don't help you get back on your feet. Is there an employment agency around your area? How many different facilities did you apply to?
