My lawyer recommends me not fighting, because i was wrong by not going to the meetings, i still have to go for random drug tests, meetings, and everything that i was supposed to be doing from the start, which i was except for the metings, for another 3 years then i have to petition to get my liscense back

What does your lawyer recommend at this point? What do you have to do to get your license back? Did they give you any options? You said your license was suspended so I'm assuming they told you what to do to get it back.

yeah i did tell them but it dosen't matter, they don't want to hear excuses bc thats what i agreed to when i signed the papers, which was 3 meetings a week.... it won't be easy to appeal my lawyer dosen't recomend bc i would be watched worse than i am now. i call everyday mon-fri to see if i have random drug screens, im not supposed to leave the state w/o permission, i have to inform all my doctors im in the program and send in medications and refills of meds every month

Did you tell them why you're not going to meetings? Can you appeal?

Hi everyone,i am new to this online stuff so if anyone can help me get started that would be great!! I am a recovering pain pill addict who just got my nursing liscense suspended for non compliance with the recovery program. My main problem was not going to metings... I have been clean for a year and a half and working as a nursing assistant night shift which makes it really hard to attend meetings. That is my story in short i just need help getting started, thanks in advance. JRT
