I am not saying that you took the drug knowingly but in the psych hospital where I work we have a lot of people with substance issues. I must hear at 5-6 times a week "How the heck did that get in there?" when we reveal the UDS results. Still it's possible someone did slip it to you. It will be difficult to prove though and you will likely face consequences for this. I found that while I was under the BON's watchful eye it was best not to party or socialize with people I did not know well or were not aware of my issue. I went to parties where people drank but they also looked out for me. "Hey don't eat that - It's got tequila in it!' It was a really tasty looking ceviche. I know some think I really did swallow the AA kool aid but one thing is true! People, places and playgrounds have to change if one is going to stay sober. Like The Book says," If you go to the barbershop often enough you're gonna end up getting a haircut!"

I consistently test "faintly positive" on UDS for PCP. It's hilarious to see the person's reaction now, because I can anticipate the questions that are coming...

It's related to the psych medications that I take. I've only had to provide proof of prescription drug use once, but I always quickly offer.

I tested positive for PCP while taking lamictal while I was under monitoring. Even after the GC/MS came back negative, I was still treated with hostility by the woman who ran the program at the time. Like...I didn't even know people still did PCP?! I associate it with episodes of Cops from the 1990s...

If you slept with someone that did cocaine then that explains it. "They" taste a little bit orally or sublingual then snort it, whatever doesn't go down to the lungs goes up to the mouth. If you kiss them within 12 hrs then you ingest coke, even though you don't get high, sorry mate. TXBON is not looking to see if you "got high" they're looking to see if you had ANY amount. Even if you did a poligragh (400) it would come back positive. Get a lawyer and see if they can extend your partisipation by a year, otherwise you'll state over. Good luck.
