Why do I need to take a drug test?

I am in a relationship and it is a long term relationship.

My husband and I are very good friends and he has taught me a lot about the importance of honesty.

I have had a drug addiction for almost a decade and I have tried everything to get clean.

I took the test three months ago.

The test shows that I am on the drug testing programme.

My test result will be sent to the police.

I am glad to be clean.

What is the impact of the drug test and how can it help me?

I am not the only one with a drug problem.

I know that other people have gone through a similar experience and it has been very hard.

The tests help me to have a better understanding of myself and my addiction.

It gives me a better idea of what is happening inside of me and how I can fix it.

What do I have to do to avoid being tested?

I should not take any drugs, especially alcohol or tobacco.

I also should avoid working outside and travelling in a group.

I should also keep myself away from alcohol and drugs.

If you want to try to get a test result for the first time, you can go to a GP or a specialist.

If I test positive, will I still need to be tested?


You will not be asked again for a test unless you have taken the drugs.

Are there any other reasons why you might want to take drugs?


I think I have become addicted to alcohol and cigarettes.

I was struggling with the same problem for a long time and now I have made some serious mistakes and I want to get away from it.

The more I think about it, the more I realise that this is not going to help me.

I feel like I have a life that is not important to me.

Do I need counselling?

Yes, it can be very difficult.

But I am so grateful for the help that my husband and my family have provided.

What can I do to help?

There are many organisations who can offer help, and I would like to thank them all.

My first advice is to talk to a psychologist who has been trained in drug and alcohol addiction.

There are also organisations which provide support groups for people who are struggling with addiction.

My family is also supportive.

I would also like to mention that you can also contact the National Drug and Alcohol Helpline.

They can help you if you have been offered support and can provide you with support from a counsellor.
