    this will be my last post.....it's been 2months since I successfully completed tpapn.. honestly my life has changed for the better .. there are rare moments when i wake up at 4am to log into recovery trek to see if I got selected for a random.. what a waste of money!! in the 2 years I was in tpapn I estimated about 4,000 dollars for drug testing.. I could of used that money for something else like my house my son or my car or to go back to school.. oh well It was a lesson learned.. today I'm grateful for everything and everyone in my life today.. just really happy it's all over.. I wish everybody in tpapn the best of luck...

    I am sending my agreement form and work release tommorow. How long after that did it take y'all to get to look for jobs? Also any ideas for places of employment in Wichita falls area would be great. Could your 4 meetings a week be done in one day or do they have to be separate days. I have a case manger just waiting on an advocate

    it just depends on when ur case manager actually gets it.. plus u might have to do the 90/90 AA/NA meetings.. try working at an office Nurse/job such as home health, less stress no narcotics , no double shifts, just 8-5 mon thru Friday . just stay clean, don't drink too much water on testing days, go to ur meetings and take it one day at a time. as far as ur meetings I was doing 2 in one day sometimes, but I wouldn't recommend that you do 4 in ine day but ask ur case manger..

    good luck jenjen4u , hope the 2 years goes by fast foryou .. remember don't take that 1st drug/drink.. 1 is too many and a 1000 is never enough.. u can do this!! if u need anything or find urself wanting to pull ur hair out hit me up with a. message.. they say ur supposed to call ur advocate but sometimes u get a advocate who has no idea what it's like to be in our shoes.. I wanted to quit so many times!! I would cry myself too sleep and want to give up!! but after 6months the program becomes routine.. my son and wife were my motivation to overcome this program.. god bless
