I just wanted to share my experience with the Kansas nurse recovery (knap) program. I’ve just completed the three year monitoring program and for any of you reading this who are in the program, I empathize. It’s a really challenging experience. My goal isn’t to offer ways to “cheat” the program but rather just to plainly state what my experience was. First if all, I have read a lot of comments on how people believe that knap is exploitive and just want to make money. I completely disagree. From my experience, the employees of knap have been nothing but helpful and supportive and even try to give you “hints” if there are changes coming. As far as drug testing, I was tested about 13 times/year. All were the standard drug panel with one etg for an abnormal (not quite considered dilute but creatinine was low enough that re-test was warranted) and another random etg because people were apparently getting away with drinking. That being said, just don’t drink. I can’t imagine the stress of that. Also, per your contract, you can be tested in other ways, randomly. Including peth or otherwise. That wasn’t my experience but then again, I was in the program for drugs, not alcohol. Long story short, just buckle in and make a routine. Three years seems so long but after it’s done, you’ll be so proud of yourself and you can put it all behind you

Congratulations and thank you for sharing your experience.  I am not in KS, but I think most of these programs are similar.

I have been sober for 15 years, so I feel good that I will never drink again.  Also, I finally landed a job, so I am very happy about that.  I know I can do this.  I think we all can!
