I am a college student about to graduate and I am on Ppst release Supervision. I have consistently tested positive for benzodiazepines with the rapid drug screens they give me at parole. Despite the fact that i am in an outpatient program and doing very well passing all drug tests, and depsite the fazct that further laboratory analysis of the rapid drug screen specimen comes back negative for all drugs, they are still demanding that I enter an inpatient rehab, which will severely compromise school. This is against the reccomendation of my outpatient program. Furthermore, they insist that i convicne the rehab that i am using drugs so that they will accept me, or else they will violate me. I am not using. What recourse do I have?

You need to have an attorney argue this case for you. You have limited rights as a parolee but an attorney can help!
