I reside in the Austin area and recently completed TPAPN. My first job in TPAPN was in Home Health. It was not really for me, I found it to be a difficult way to earn a living but it did allow me to circumvent the narcotic restriction. Another advantage was some control over my daily schedule and the opportunity to catch an AA meeting during the workday. I worked for 2 different Home Health companies, Jordan Health Services and HealthAtHome, and was offered a position by Encompass. Eventually, I ended up in Psych. Again, it is not an easy way to earn a living. The narcotic restriction should not be a big deal in Psych, I work in Psych now and really do not give that many controlled substances, mostly Haldol, Geodon, Zyprexa but with a sprinkling of Ativan and Xanax.
I would suggest focusing on the smaller agencies and facilities. I must have applied for hundreds of positions @ Seton, Baylor Scott & White, St. Davids and the State of Texas to no avail. Among psych facilities, I have applied to Rock Springs many times without success.
Best of luck to you.
