To continue along this journey..

I went for my evaluation in Tampa, as they only gave me an option of three places, two in Tampa and one in Gainesville. My evaluation included a urine tox (unsupervised), a hair follicle test, and a PETH test. I also spoke to the MD for about 20 minutes. I’m not sure what my results came back as, I’m still waiting for them to send me a copy of his report and recommendations.. but IPN called me back today and let me know that his recommendations were for IOP, intensive outpatient rehab. They then sent me the number for 4 different facilities that are IPN approved. Funny enough, none of the places don’t take my insurance, so all out of pocket. The IOPs I’ve called so far range from about 6-8 weeks, about $3600-5600 for the program. I have two weeks to choose a facility but I’ll definitely be choosing one by this week! So far this process has taken about 5 weeks. 3/13 I self reported to IPN. 3/25 was my IPN eval ($900). 4/13 I received my recommendations. Next is to setup IOP. Will continue to keep everyone monitored and answer as many questions as possible!

Hang in there. Yeah, the cost is horrible, right?! So far, I have spent over 4k and only been in TPAPN since January.

Found out I still have one more "class" to do, but it is on hold for now. Looks like it is about another 300-500. Ugh. I need to get back to work, so I can pay for all of this!

Hello, which facility did you finally picked? Also, which place was 6 weeks. I too have to do IPN IOP and they gave me 3 facilities for which all are in Tampa and Gainesville. Funny because I live in Miami and one of the places said I had to go in for random drug test and it wasn’t doing to work out by me living so far. These people don’t even consider your area when they send recommendations.

Nope! They sure don’t. I went to M.S. in Tampa. But from the extensive comments I read, he always recommends some kind of rehab. For me, it was 6 weeks of intensive outpatient in which I cannot return to work until this is complete. I’m with another nurse, tomorrow I’ll find out which facility she went to and will comment again.
