    That was my thought too - not saying anything at all about your SO, OP. From past experience mine, and also friends here in La, but probably not going to be easy at all.

I was not that lucky, and it was a long, hard wait and look for a job.

    OMG.... that is just so unfair. She does not deserve to be treated like this. I mean really she did it on her own time didnt effect patient care, who do they think they are? Everyone of us has our own story, some for drugs, some for alcochol, some for both. Best thing she can do is quit complaining and grab hold of this program and ride it to the end, and if you are going to be in her life quite being an enabler by making excuses and become supportive. I am here for alcohol abuse, she is here for smoking pot. Work the program and quite trying to manipulate the system.
