Relapsed during furlough on suboxone now

Hello, I am a brand new graduate, I got my first nursing job and only lasted 2 months due to covid. I relapsed on pain pills while on furlough and after a few attempts I have gone back to maintenance after 10 years in recovery. I have a pre employment drug screen today and I’m so nervous. Also I am in PA and I keep reading different things such as the state of PA doesn’t allow for maintenance. Can anyone help me with the correct information?

I’m in California and have gotten several jobs on Suboxone maintenance. I’ve never heard of a pre-employment screen testing for Buprenorphine. It does not come up as an opiate. I don’t know about the laws on the matter but it shouldn’t cause you to test positive.

yes im on subs too, got a job passed the drug test.they don't include it.goodluck!

also mat,subs,is great no cravings,no desire for narcs when I handle them at work.nno body pain but it is expensive,Dr,scripts,urine testing.

Hi thanks everyone, I got the job but my ex who I’m in a nasty custody battle with reported me to the bored. I’m under investigation but I was honest so I’m not sure what’s going to happen. The only thing I’m on is suboxone.
