Probation urine analysis for alcohol

Austin, TX |

My po randomly tested me and sent it off for alcohol testing, I went out on a Saturday and was tested Monday around noon even if she sends this off will alcohol show up and will my medications affect this?

  1. Did you drink? If so, then you violated probation and it wills how. Doh.

    If you are on medications, you need to provide your p.o. with the proof they are legal.

    You want to go to jail, right?

  2. What else can be said on this one?

  3. The alcohol may or may not show up, depending on what kind of test they use. If you are on prescription medication while on probation, you should always notify your PO and provide her proof of a valid prescription.

    Macy Jaggers's answer to a legal question on Avvo does not establish an attorney-client relationship. Ms. Jaggers offers everyone a free consultation to discuss their case.

  4. Probably not. If you're not supposed to be drinking, you are taking a very big chance. Make sure you provide your probation officer with a complete list of any medications.

  5. I doubt it. While on probation, however, you are supposed to refrain from using drugs and/or alcohol, so you are definitely taking chances. If you are taking medication, make sure to give a list of medications to your PO in case something shows up. Good luck!
