Scarred, I also am sorry that you hit this snag. There are many that believe once and addict always an addict. They refuse to believe that people change. I know this is depressing but in reality, they are the ones with the problem. The shrink needs to up dtae their education and realize that it is possible that people change. Most would agree but they have to hear for themselves. I know from experience that one of the major thoughts in the drug/alcohol addiction field centers in not with the addiction or use of drugs/alcohol but with the reasons why people used them. It would be great to see a diagnoisis that says "young and stupid but now grown up." That could apply to most of us and even those doing the psy evals. I recently saw my PMS and he stated that he was not going to require me to go through the psy eval unless my insurance demanded it. I called my WC and they said if the Dr. did not see a need, we would procede without the eval. I go in the 12th for my trial neve stimulator and then will have it removed the 18th. Keep fighting and don't give up. I remember during a Psy class in college the professor asked me why I was taking his class (after he heard several coments from me in class that did not make him happy) and I told him "so when I get thown into an istitution I will understand my treatment. Wrong thing to say. I grew up sometime after that. Blessings on you. You can do it.
