I am asking this in the hopes that I am mistaken, though I know the answer I'm gonna get is probably not the one I want. In 2007 I went through a drug/alcohol treatment program. For what it's worth, I have been sober for almost three years and have since graduated from school, and am a responsible, highly functioning member of society. Is it true that I am not eligible for a CHL until 5 years after I have last received drug or alcohol treatment? I think this is part of the criteria for "chemical dependency" according to the CHL laws. Also, I entered treatment voluntarily, and I know that voluntary commitments are not public record. That being said, I want to be honest in my CHL application, and if that's the law then so be it, I have to wait a couple more years. I just don't know if voluntary treatment episodes also meet that criteria. If not, I will just keep it in the glovebox for the time being. I'm hoping to hear from txinvestigator or another knowledgeable intstructor out there on this. Thanks!
