TPAPN completion

  1. For anyone that's successfully completed TPAPN....did you complete on the anniversary of the day you signed your contract? How long before you were no longer required to check in? I should be done in a day or two and I was just curious what to expect. Thanks in advance for your replies!

    I'm anxious to hear about this too! Haven't you gotten any communication from your case manager? I sure hope it all happens on exactly the day of the 3 year mark! I have a count down calculator app on my phone and i know exactly how much time i have left (384 days!). I DO NOT want to have to do a single day longer than necessary! Let us know how things turn out for you.

    Hi, When I completed TPAPN, anniversary date came and went, your not done until recovery trek won't let you log in anymore, that took several more weeks. Your almost there! Well done

    I spoke with my case manager around the 10th of this month...she stated I was set to complete once she received my negative test for this month and my monthly report, which have been submitted. I'm hoping that the process of being released from recovery trek has improved although I don't see that happening as recovery trek took 2 months to move me to the final step down testing after receiving the email request from my case manager during my last year. It's so frustrating that we are held to higher standards regarding deadlines than they are. We should complete three years to the day as promised. I haven't missed a single check in, test, or been late on even one piece of paperwork, therefore, I was (and still am hoping) that they would rush my discharge along. One of my favorite things that have been said to me as I'm nearing the completion of this process was told to me by my advocate and was as follows....."Once you complete this process, nothing should change except for the fact that you no longer have to check in"- I truly find this comment proof that they have no idea how much this process consumes your thoughts and life. I absolutely cannot wait to not have to worry about every ingredient I put in my mouth, to actually clean my house with real cleaning products of my choosing, and use hand sanitizer without a second thought. These are just a FEW ways my life will indeed change!!!! As for now I suppose it's still a waiting game. I will def keep y'all posted as I'm sure others like me are curious about what to expect.

    A follow up question to Oogie would be were you selected to test after your anniversary date? If so, that would seem totally unfair but I would expect nothing less.

    I was not selected after my anniversary date, it was just a very frustrating wait!

    I am so excited to say that I have successfully completed TPAPN!!!! I emailed my case manager yesterday reminding her that I believed I had reached my completion date and to confirm she had received all my final paperwork....I was able to check into recovery trek as usual this am at 0400. However, I just received a response from her and she said I was good to go. I tried to log into recovery trek again and it now says I'm inactive. I couldn't be happier!!!!! I am so excited and grateful that it was even quicker than I expected. So there it is guys. I'll wait for my completion letter to arrive in the mail and then I will happily burn the gigantic stack of every piece of paper I've collected over the last 3 years. Thanks so much for all your replies. You guys are awesome!!!

    Congratulations on your completion! You are an inspiration to me. I just passed my halfway mark. I read where you said step down testing in the final year, is that a real thing??? No one mentioned this to me.. I would love it though, I am tested at least 3 times a month, sometimes 4. Sometimes 3 in a week! Makes no sense to me. But I guess not much of this program does or is supposed to! Thanks for any input from anyone, I would love to be able to ask for less testing, save some money! I haven't ever missed a check in or tested positive. My very first one was a dilute, but I then figured out how to prevent that, my bladder is trained!
    Congrats again on your completion!!
