Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
I certainly understand the situation and your concern. If you leave and fail to report/return, you have violated, since probation will determine you absconded. It will not matter if you come back clean and sober, since a warrant will be issued for your arrest. In a situation like this, if your PO says no, then you would need to file a motion with the court and ask the Judge to allow you to relocate and transfer your probation.
No, you do not. You can file it on your own. It would be a motion to transfer probation and in the body of the motion, you want to show and convince the Judge that there is a need to relocate out of state, for treatment.
