Hi I am a recovering addict that has eight years sobriety and it has been a long hard road. I went through HPRP in MI and I never did complete a full contract but I did complete nearly 2 years of a 3 year contract with no problems. It was financially difficult with two toddlers and unable to work but through all of the problems I maintained my sobriety. I have been to the Nursing Board and Court for my license numerous times and I am heading there again the end of this month due to a license suspension of 6 mth + 1 Day and they did not reinstate my license in September. My drug of choice was marijuana I never drank and it has been very hard for me to show that I am clean. I cannot afford to go to therapy anymore and I am not under contract with HPRP I have no insurance or employment right now.
I guess I just need some positive encouragement that all of this will turn out OK the end of this month so I can return to the job I love so much and that is caring for my patients. It has been nearly two years since I have worked.
