I went through the mill a year and a half ago with a stepson that told them anything he thought they'd believe. They'll believe anything that's
bad. So, here's what I know.
A) What they can and cannot do depends on what state you live in. Each state has different rules and laws. With that said take some of this well
intentioned advice from the jailhouse lawyers with a grain of salt.
B) Get a lawyer who will advise you but not get directly involved until there's a good reason. Nothing says "I'm guilty" like F. Lee Bailey
running his mouth at a social worker. Look for one who's dealt with CPS and let him coach you. He'll know when to take it to the next level.
C) So long as you have a legitimate prescription for whatever you test positive for they can't say a freakin word. Not even if it's a year old. So
long as your name is on the bottle and there's an MD's name they can confirm the prescription with their hands are tied. You're legal.
D) The name of the game is make you sweat. They'll apply as much pressure as they can in the hopes you'll screw up. This isn't necessarily because
they think you're an abusive parent or because they think you could be. It's a money game. They need guys like you to justify their existence and
E) In most states this kind of BS bypasses the courts. The reason for this is that a jury of your peers would laugh them out of court. These days most
states have empowered Social Services to do what they do without due process. It's the only way they can win. But, it does give them a lot of
I have no idea what state you live in but the next time you pee in the bottle tell the Social Zealot you're having your own test performed at a
clinic down the street as soon as you're done with them. Don't dick around. Go immediately to the clinic and pee in their bottle. Use a clinic that
sends samples to LabCorp and ask for a double panel drug screen (around $60). This is the same test they give commercial pilots and drivers. The
thresholds are lower but there's actually a double test done on the same sample to rule out a false positive and to confirm any positives.
Don't try to physically monkey with the tests. With a double panel you should be stripped and gowned before taken to a rest room where they'll
observe you fill the cup. They won't actually watch you stick Willy in the jar but it will be close enough to make you uncomfortable. TPTB know what
a double panel is and it will make anyone who may be inclined to spike your sample down at the CPS clinic think twice. With a double panel the chain
of custody is nearly air tight and LabCorp does excellent testing.
If you're clean you have nothing to worry about and if you're dirty go to you nearest GNC vitamin store and tell the nice lady or gent you need to
detox for a urine test. They'll know what you need and the bottle costs around $50. Follow the instructions to the letter.
The last thing I'll tell you is stop sweating and acting like a nut. That's what they want you to do. Don't give them the pleasure. Those instant
tests done in the office while you wait are notoriously bad. About five years ago the Army got a bad batch of the instant test cups the recruiters use
and everyone they tested turned up positive for coc aine. It took them two months to figure out what was going on. From then on (to save some
money) they only used them as a go/no go for weed.
Remember, the goofier you act the guiltier you look. Take them serious but not so serious you look like you're ready to jump out a window. Good luck
and don't expect a damned thing you see or hear to make sense. Just roll with the punches.
