Is Past Treatment for Drug and Alcohol Abuse Private?

Question by Rainy D: Is past treatment for drug and alcohol abuse private?
I’ve been accepted to LPN school and on the physical sheet they ask if I’ve ever been treated for drug or alcohol abuse. I really don’t want to reveal this, some people are very judgmental when it comes to that. But it says on the bottom that knowingly giving false information can result in dismissal to the program, I went to rehab 7 years ago. Shouldn’t this be my business? Do I have to reveal this?
If I answer yes can they take back my acceptance to the program?

Answer by Tink
This is something that a good lawyer should be able to answer in a phone call without a charge. Look for one that handles drug and alcohol charges. I believe that unless a legal charge was filed, that you don’t have to report it – but I wouldn’t swear to that under those circumstances.

Good luck

Bradford Health Services – Secretiveness in Teens May Be a Sign of Alcohol or Drug Abuse.mp4 – Recovery Moments The teenage years are a challenging time for both teenagers and their parents. Teenagers, stuck between adulthood and childhood, must contend with a number of physical and psychological changes. Many attitudes and actions of your typical teen can resemble behavior that might signify substance abuse or a mental health issue. As part of asserting their independence, teenagers place a high premium on privacy…to the point of being secretive. Children who never thought to conceal much of anything from their families suddenly become very protective of their world and selective about what they share with their parents. This may or may not be indicative of a problem. Smell is one of the main things that give teenagers away when they’re abusing drugs or alcohol. If you smell smoke, alcohol, or drugs — whether it’s in their room or on their clothes — you have strong reason to be concerned.
