Hi all, I am new to this site. I am currently in the middle of an investigation at work, suspended without pay. After reasonable suspicion I was called into employee health, submitted to drug screening, knowing full well that it was going to be positive. I am looking to find an addiction counseling program, and move forward with my life. I would want to stay in the nursing field but attempt to be in a non-clinical environment where I would not have to be medicating patients, at least for a good long time to make sure that I can fight my urges. How did you go about finding a reputable resource that can determine whether I need in-patient, or out-patient counseling. My situation of not knowing whether I am being terminated, charged criminally, or placed into a assistance program at work is driving me crazy. Does anyone know if they charge criminally for diversion at the work place? It has caused a huge amount of stress at home, as worries are mounting about finances. I am not sure if I will qualify for unemployment, or what. I have already begun the process of withdrawing my retirement so that my family and I can make ends meet. When the time comes if I am terminated or put into an AP, how long does it take for the BON to contact you whether or not they are offering you the monitoring/ rehab program for licensed professionals? Is it automatically offered to you as a first time offender?Any help with these questions would be greatly appreciated.
