    Test question

    2.5 years in probation and Tuesday, I was selected for a $78 urine test with labcorp. I’ve only had $32 and $53ish dollar urine test (along with the blood, hair and nails) but never a $78 urine. Has anyone had one? It said option 9. I can’t remember the options the other priced tests were. Is this a new test or did they raise prices to accommodate the pandemic? I keep stewing in wondering if they found a new way to get more money from me. I mean- I can’t imagine it’s another test due to thinking the other two priced test would surely test for everything they would need to test for. Any One else get a price raise? Or have an option 9 test before?

    Is this TPAPN order fair?

    Nothing about any of this is fair. They will take advantage of the cash any way they can I’m sorry you’re going through this.

    Testing- hair/nails/peth

    Last question- do you use affinity? Do you know how to petition for a closer site?

    What is the specialty urine test? I haven’t heard of this yet.

    Just out of curiosity, how many specialty tests have you had vs how long you’ve been in the programs? Also- has anyone successfully presented a closer testing site? The closest one to me is 30 min away and someone in my AA meeting said that you can send in a letter requesting a closer site? Thanks!
  6. I did the online "application" and received an email from the board saying someone would contact me. That was weeks ago! Also, I had got a job in the mean time and the web site said I have to cease working immediately but someone from the board said to talk to the lady when she calls me when I asked her to be sure. So I've continued working. I'm so anxious I am messing something up! I don't want to draw attention to myself bc I'd like to buy as much time as I can to get through a family even the end of the month but I don't know what to do.How long did it take you to initially hear from them after you self reported?

    Me again! Timeframe question.

    My parents 40th Anniversary is the end of next month and my wife and sister in law have planned a huge party and I'm hoping to delay it in case they force me into inpatient. I hate the thought of delaying and having to be in the program longer and also hate the possibility of being in over the holidays. Why did u do this to myself?!?

    Me again! Timeframe question.

    After you talked to your programs "people", how long did you wait, we're you ALLOWED to wait before getting the eval? Please answer if you read this.

    Thank you so much. Congrats! And yes, very lucky indeed! All the board approved providers that I have called require a multi day assessment but I'm praying I can somehow get by without having to do inpatient still. I'm looking into traveling to Ga perhaps since there are 3 facilities there that hopefully aren't in the programs pocket. Thank you for the encouragement. It certainly feels pretty low down here. But agree that one day having my license clean will be worth it.

    alternative program rejection?

    And what do you mean it took them 3 years? W

    alternative program rejection?

    Man, that sucks. That's my fear. That they don't accept me. My lawyer doesn't see a reason why they wouldn't but after all the reading, I'm orettt paranoid.

    Talbott recovery

    It's very frustrating. I'm just a guy trying to not destroy his family life while putting his career back together and it seems impossible.

    Talbott recovery

    Has anyone used their Atlanta or Columbus Ga facilities for their evals?

    alternative program rejection?

    Have any of applied to the program in your state and been denied? I am super anxious that they will deny me and then use my "admission" against me? Thanks. This waiting game is a killer.

    sugar alcohols?

    I meant more so, the consumption of sugar alcohol?

    sugar alcohols?

    Totally random, but anybody do a keto lifestyle or even diabetic? I've been reading about how sugar alcohol can make you test positive? I haven't began my program yet as I'm still waiting to hear back. But my wife and I have been doing keto for a few months and now I believe I shouldn't have sugar alcohol?
