    Leaving HPRP-Work Suggestions?

    Thank you Hppy...your message has many words of wisdom. When I talk with the case manager, I’ll definitely choose a non-confrontational, passive-aggressive tone...that’s just me in a nutshell anyway. I will absolutely consider all you’ve said, and at the same time, expect and be prepared for the worse case scenario. I’m not willing to put up with the system unless the system shows me it has exceptions and tolerances. At this point, I don’t believe it has either, but I’d be willing to believe that it does and consider alternatives. Thx again 😘

    Leaving HPRP-Work Suggestions?

    OMG Bravo! I’m sorry you’re going thru this. I understand how stressful and angering this must be for you. I feel like a respectable agency would take each and every “case” into individual consideration, but, although I’ve only had a monitoring agreement in effect for 7 weeks, I know already that’s not true. The system is sooooo flawed in many ways, and there’s nothing we can do except: either deal with it and hope the end of it comes at some point or say **** it, you can have my license. I’m doing the latter. I’m sorry to hear your story. Best of luck. 😔

    Leaving HPRP-Work Suggestions?

    Abbey—Thx for your message. I resigned after a year and a half of nursing this past March because of illness in the family—I was trying to work full time and be a full time caregiver and decided work had to come 2nd. COVID was ramping up at the same time. I was stressed and depressed. I will take my nursing experience off my resume, good idea. My HPRP monitoring agreement is 3 years, which is standard in MI. As far as I’m concerned, tho, it’s over. I’ve stopped checking in every morning to see if I have to drug test (and I’m sure I missed one this week because I was “randomly” being chosen to test every week, and historically it’s been urine, blood, urine, blood, urine...this week would have been blood) and I purposefully did not attend a therapy session. I haven’t called the case manager yet to tell her HPRP can go to you know where. Figured I’d let her do her job—she can call me. Anyway, thx to you and everyone for letting me vent!

    Leaving HPRP-Work Suggestions?

    I’ve been in HPRP for 7 weeks and have decided to quit this so-called non-disciplinary (per HPRP), free-of-charge (per LARA website...of course that doesn’t include all the testing fees and therapists’ fees) “program”. I got into it completely by mistake: in trying to find a therapist to help me thru many stressors in my life, I called the HPRP phone number, admitted I drank 4-5 times a week, and got sucked into the system. I’d never heard of HPRP before. I contacted a lawyer before signing the monitoring agreement, but he basically said to me, “Once HPRP has their claws in you, you can’t get out.” My life has been horrible since “joining”/being a “participant” in this “program”....stressed, angry and depressed over the cost, time, and feeling demoralized. I don’t need this, and it’s not worth it to me to retain my license. So, I’m getting out of HPRP. I’m a new nurse but I’m older, and I know my license will be suspended. So my question is...Does anyone know or have suggestions on what kind of work I will be able to do? Will I be able to be a caregiver or a nursing assistant? Thanks for your replies.
