    ppltx,

    I am currently in TPAPN. I guess the board is telling you to self report? I am not sure. I am currently in TPAPN but that was after I was referred by the board after a positive drug screen. If I could do everything over again, I would have gotten a lawyer who was well versed in TPAPN. No one one this site can give you legal advice and telling you how to proceed could be considered giving legal advice. The first time I talked to my case manager, she asked me about my drug use and then told me I would have to be evaluated. They usually send you some correspondence in the mail with a list of approved facilities where you can be assessed. I have found many lawyers who are former physicians, PA's and there was even 1 lawyer who was a former TPAPN advocate (after the fact). I don't think it would hurt for you to get some legal advice. I think TPAPN is great for those who need to start the recovery process. I don't know how I feel about someone who is in good recover and has been for several years going through the program. Good luck on this journey.

    When I signed up I called the toll free number.
