Any experience with Ohio BON and Court?

  1. Hi there,

    I am just beginning the whole recovery process and am filling out the application for "Alternative to Discipline" program. I am still facing court related issues, but my attorney assures me that "treatment in lieu of conviction" is pretty much a sure thing. From what he tells me, the judge that presides over "drug court" requires that healthcare professionals attend a 90 day lock-in program of rehab. I am fine with doing that, I was just wondering if anyone has had experience with this type of thing, either in Ohio or amywhere else. I am trying to prepare myself for what is coming.
    Any advice you can send my way would be much appreciated.
    Also, the "alternative program" last 3 years, how often do you get tested during a year and how does it work? Do they call you or what? I am a travel/agency nurse so I do know that the cost of testing comes out of my pocket.
    Like I said any info you can provide.
    Thanks in advance,

    We can't provide any advice as this is something that can only be answered by your lawyer or BON as we don't know each individual case/circumstances. Good luck and take care
