    One more bat outta hades

    Oh no. My drinking will no longer involve driving. I've said all along that I spent 3 1/2 years in PNAP and not 30 seconds in recovery. I was dead serious.

    I certainly plan on it. I celebrated last night with a pizza and some beer, yay! Now only to survive the pandemic. I may get detailed to New Orleans pretty quick here

    One more bat outta hades

    Hi all, Well it finally happened. I completed PNAP yesterday. I am super-glad to be done. Please note I'm just a regular guy & if I can complete this nonsense so can you. This program has done nothing good for me so I don't have a bunch of roses and sunshine to spread around but if you are reading this and wondering if it will ever come to an end it will. God bless to all of you for these last years you have been my strongest support system as nobody can understand the anger and loss associated with these programs as does another inmate. Stay strong, keep following the idiotic rules and come out the other-side with as much of you intact as humanly possible. I'll be here to offer support as others have done for me. Hang in there!!

    Class Action Lawsuit

    Hi all, Does anybody know of any class action lawsuits against these monitoring programs? Are there any active in Pennsylvania or anywhere else? I’m pretty sure there is one in Michigan and I’m contemplating asking that firm to initiate one here

    You know darn well when this is over they will be ordering super expensive tests to cover the cash their buddies lost during the crisis.

    Does an attorney help against PHMP/PNAP?

    Everyone should get an attorney and fight this tooth and nail. I didn’t I trusted the BON to have my best interests at heart. Boy was I wrong and I truly regret it
  7. I’m sorry these programs are horrible in every way. Good luck

    If you are happy doing something else keep doing it. I wouldn’t recommend putting myself in the hands of these ignorant butt-clowns as the price of admission to this job.

    PNAP Question

    Yeah that’s pretty much what I told the lady I talked to. Not only that these folks have the wrong audience. I go to work in a hospital everyday. These people can’t even do their jobs remotely???? It’s asinine but it also is what it is. I find it insane that many of these folks won’t leave the safety if their homes but they are sending people in monitoring out into the community for testing at a real risk to the person in the program and contrary to any public health advice that is available. Out of touch and insulated doesn’t even begin to describe this

    PNAP Question

    Yeah I was told by a case manager. I hope that it comes in soon but it’s outta my hands

    COVID 19 and Monitoring Programs

    Oh yeah a bunch of these folks replaced the barstool with a chair at an AA meeting. Hey whatever works for ya

    COVID 19 and Monitoring Programs

    Truthfully if I wasn’t forced into attending these meetings I might have had a different opinion of them. I doubt it because at best many seem more than a little goofy. It’s like forcing a kid to eat liver 3 times a week. I guess the kid would either learn to love liver or it would completely repulse him or her to the point they would rather go hungry than eat it again. That’s where I’m at with AA. I’d rather die drunk In a ditch than attend these things again. There are good people in AA but they are overwhelmed by the masses of kooks that inhabit these things. The fact that this voodoo treatment is prescribed by medical professionals and the courts as some kind of treatment blows my mind

    Leaving IPN?

    Yeah I tell folks all the time unless you follow the rules completely this program will burn u. I’m sorry you are in this mess
  16. SpankedInPittsburgh

    Starting this IPN journey.

    Yeah I told the truth. I said that I drank 3-4 times a week usually on off nights from work. I landed in inpatient then outpatient rehab for 6 months rehab. I have a friend who got pulled over for the exact same offense and lied threw her teeth combined with an emotional show and her case got closed. Anything you say will be used against you. These folks aren’t here to help you and the monitoring program could care less about you
