I have a rare decease and under a drs care so I have legal prescriptions but don't know what to do, I don't want them in my personal life and an ex of the family called just to get revenge. What advise would you give me they say they want the test to close the file
Look on this excellent free website and hire a CPS attorney immediately. Please don't wait.
CPS presumes that you are guilty and you must prove that you are innocent. There are many fine Houston CPS attorneys. We are not allowed to make a recommendation on this website. I list several that I know on my blog. You might also look there.

You are strongly encouraged to consult with an attorney in your county in person about your specific legal problem.
The problem with giving you general advice is that sometimes it is indeed true that compliance with a limited request is actually needed to close a file, but sometimes CPS is merely building their case! Consult a lawyer who is familiar with CPS who can listen to the relevant facts and advise you. As to the drug testing, if you do decide to go in to be tested, take your med bottles with you and make certain the facility notes them in case they show up on the results. Do this even if the med doesn't appear on its face to be relevant.
You don't have to take a drug test for CPS... That being said, if you have valid prescriptions for the substances you will be testing positive for, then a drug test for CPS might be the easiest way to get them out of your life and close their case. I would consult an attorney in your area.
