my ex was writing his own prescripitions and got this. Sad part was 3 months after completing the program he was doctor shopping and did so for 4 yrs. He was arrested by the AG in March-then skipped bail.
I know a number of people who insisted I reject Drug Court and take probation instead. What they described was a highly invasive process. If you are not an addict, probation is enough. If you are an addict, as you have experienced, nothing is really enough. A few lucky ones, in my estimate, get through it OK. The rest just hand over money.
