HPRP evaluation, advice needed please

Posted

So I got a DUI in March, was out with friends and I should not have drove after drinking but a male friend was making me very uncomfortable with his advances so I got in my car thinking I could drive away from him then call someone. But I hit a curb and a pole. Anyway I’m almost out of the court probation, I have one more month. I self reported to the BON with the help of an attorney and I just heard from HPRP asking me to call for an intake and do an evaluation and all this stuff. I’ve read horror stories about the program and I 100% want to avoid it. I am not a big drinker, I have not drank in months and I’m usually only a few times a year drinker normally. I’m scared out of my mind. My attorney said he will contact someone at hprp for me on Monday. Does anyone know what I can expect with this process? Is there any way out of a monitoring agreement?

I recently got a dui in May. I am currently looking for a lawyer for help notifying the BON. I'm wondering if voluntarily submitting to HPRP will prevent disciplinary action from the board and thus not show up on my license or if it is better to have it show up and circumvent HPRP if at all possible as I have heard horror stories as well. Are you able to provide more information on how your case is progressing?

DO NOT voluntary self report to hprp. Once you do, they own your life. Instead, get a substance abuse eval done to prove you do not have a problem. You can PM me I’m also in MI
