How to Complete Probation-Five Stumbling Blocks to Successfully Completing Your Probation

Stumbling Block Number 3:

3. Drug addicition

First, drug addiction is a very real and very detrimental disease. A drug addiction can lead to a violation of probation if there is random urinalysis ordered or you are ordered to attend some rehabilitation program. If you continue to ingest illegal narcotics while on probation and you are asked to give a urine sample, then you are likely in danger of testing positive and this alone can be a violation of probation. Many probation offices will forgive the first positive test if it comes shortly after you put on probation. This is in no way a guarantee they will however. If you are lawfully prescribed any medication, make sure you let your probation officer know! Also, the continued use of narcotics may also get you ejected from a rehabilitation facility you may have been ordered to go to. If a term of your probation is to successfully complete XYZ rehabilitation program, then being ejected from that program may also cause your probation to be violated. The best thing you can do is use this opportunity to get help for yourself and get over any addiction you may have. Do not look at it as the courts and probation ruining your fun; drug testing and rehabilitation programs are part of a sentence for the sole purpose of helping YOU, so take advantage of it!
