    Florida IPN

    So I just got my report back from said Dr. I tested negative for urine, hair follicle, and PETH test. All negative. No mental health disorders. However due to my one time reported use, he suggesting that I exhibited substance taken in larger amounts and for longer periods then intended and cravings. I literally told him I smoked pot twice in my life, one being days before the urine test. It seems like no matter what, you’re going to get some sort of treatment/ program required.

    Florida IPN

    I went to him recently. He suggested IOP, intensive outpatient rehab minimum of 9 hours a week. I’m waiting for my actual report from him. All in all, he seemed like a nice guy. Facility was decent. Nice people.

    IPN continues

    To continue along this journey.. I went for my evaluation in Tampa, as they only gave me an option of three places, two in Tampa and one in Gainesville. My evaluation included a urine tox (unsupervised), a hair follicle test, and a PETH test. I also spoke to the MD for about 20 minutes. I’m not sure what my results came back as, I’m still waiting for them to send me a copy of his report and recommendations.. but IPN called me back today and let me know that his recommendations were for IOP, intensive outpatient rehab. They then sent me the number for 4 different facilities that are IPN approved. Funny enough, none of the places don’t take my insurance, so all out of pocket. The IOPs I’ve called so far range from about 6-8 weeks, about $3600-5600 for the program. I have two weeks to choose a facility but I’ll definitely be choosing one by this week! So far this process has taken about 5 weeks. 3/13 I self reported to IPN. 3/25 was my IPN eval ($900). 4/13 I received my recommendations. Next is to setup IOP. Will continue to keep everyone monitored and answer as many questions as possible!

    Starting this IPN journey.

    Thanks for the advice. Going for my evaluation this Wednesday! Nervous as *** as they say to expect a urine, blood, and possible hair follicle test! Yikes. I’m in no way a regular marijuana smoke but I know after my recent use that HFT is coming back positive. Detoxing now. Unfortunately with everything else going on, I can not afford a lawyer at this time. Just doing my best to stay out of rehab at this point. Will continue to keep this thread updated.
  6. Hi I see that you’re evaluation is costing $900. It seems like we may be going to the same place. Can you email me privately, as we’re not allowed to discuss doctors here on the site. @goldeelocs@icloud.com

    Starting this IPN journey.

    So I’m a SoFla RN who tested positive for THC on March 6th. As suggested by my current job, I self reported to IPN when I got results about a week later. By the end of that day I received my initial paperwork which needed to be filled out and a passport photo mailed in. I did all of this on Saturday. By Tuesday 3/17 I got my list of evaluators (THREE EVALUATORS in the State if Florida) and I scheduled an appointment for Next week Wednesday. This whole process has been giving me extreme anxiety and I’m just ready to see this doctor, get my recommendations, and get back to work. My job luckily hasn’t fired me (yet) and I’m currently on administrative leave with instruction to keep my manager updated on any information. I’m told the whole process takes about 30-60 days. So far it’s all been pretty quick. I’m nervous about the MD I chose as I’ve heard that Tampa evaluators usually send you to rehab! in all honesty, initially with my case manager I lied and said that I was in a car where THC was being hotboxed. I haven’t told her the truth (I was pregnant in January and lost the baby beginning of February.. smoked about twice a week or so on my off days to help me cope. Honestly stopped in the beginning of March as I really felt like my life was getting back on track) but I do plan on telling the psychiatrist the truth of the situation. I’ll continue to keep you all posted on the process in hopes of helping any other RNs out there. Ant information or advice for me would be greatly appreciated.

    IPN evaluation

    Hi! I just started this whole crazy process of IPN. They’re very vague and don’t give much information off bat. How long has this process been so far? Are there really only three evaluation sites in Florida? They told me the initial process is 30-60 days and during that time I cannot work as a nurse. Any updates would be super informative! Thank you
