As I have said before, your lawyer is the person to ask.
I completed an intensive residential program (Insight House, Utica), a halfway house (SBH) and outpatient treatment (SBH) before I was even put on probation. I have been on for 2 years now. I have been sober for 3 years. I am in my fourth semester at OCC and plan on transferring to ESF. I do volunteer work and fundraise for local community organizations. No police contact or failed drug test in three years.
Anything is possible but it will probably be an uphill battle. You can try asking your probation office and if that...
