    They will only know if u tell them. Keep your chin up & keep moving in the right direction.
    I personally know nurses that have been thru self admitted "detox" thru an ER, which landed me a voluntary week long stay on the psych ward. It got the job done.
    The grey area is what u choose to disclose. We all are aware of the mental health/addiction questions on the licensing application.
    Personally, I've taken my chances. I was not employed as an RN at the time, I wholeheartedly disagree with the stigma and repercussions that may/will unfold with blatent honesty.
