If you have to ask your attorney what the next best step should be, you need another attorney! To be sure, every jurisdiction and even different court within a given jurisdiction have different policies. A second violation of probation a drug screen not somehow connected to some error, seems to indicate a secret , maybe hidden desire to be in jail. Have you discussed with anyone how you may just be using drugs or associating yourself with some drug environment as a means to the hidden goal. As a goal-oriented person, persistance in this pursuit will always result in success. But then, you could always change the goal?
