Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
The answer to your question really depends on many factors, such as but not limited to, the stipulations surrounding your parole (if you fail a test, you void parole), the prosecutor, the judge and your prior arrest record. If you know you will fail the test, the best course of action is to immediately check yourself into an inpatient rehab facility to combat your problem. If you complete a rehab, even while on parole, you give yourself a really good shot at avoiding incarceration.

Good...sorry I missed that. Even still, the advice is the same. I violation of probation can result in jail time - in fact, it is more likely than not unless proper steps are taken. A rehab stint, even if only a week or two, can work towards avoiding time in jail or another charge. It shows your willingness to acknowledge an issue and take steps to solve it. It shows responsibility.

Just checking to see if you had any additional questions. I want you to be as comfortable as possible moving forward. Thanks!
