Received an Article 15 positive anti anxiety medication.

Received an Article 15 for testing positive for an anti anxiety medication. Charged with Article 112a and found guilty. I have never taken any anti anxiety pills. We dont have any medications in the house or in my work center. The problem i believe is with the UPL. He left his samples, full and empty bottles, unattended and i think something was switched up. The observer and i waited about 10 minutes before he returned. When i told the BN this happened, they asked the UPL if he left the samples unattended and of course he said he didnt. Appealed to the BDE commander but she denied it. Is there anything else i can do?

I am a 2LT serving in Korea. My father passed away a month

I am a 2LT serving in Korea. My father passed away a month ago and I was allowed to take emergency leave. Upon my return, I was not in the right mindset. I was prescribed Adderall from mental health but took way to much one weekend resulting in a trip to the hospital. A few weeks later I made the poor decision to drink during duty. After being enrolled in ASAP, I had a relapse and drank again and found by command. My priority is to take care of this drinking problem and am taking all steps possible to do so. Being chaptered out is not ideal but I am ok with it considering I have options outside of the military. My question is what type of chapter is likely and the type of discharge.

Can I be held past my EAS for not having completed the Seps/taps

Can I be held past my EAS for not having completed the Seps/taps class. My scheduled date was very close to my EAS and I never ended up going because of a family emergency, went on emergency leave and have documentation for that. But the Career Planner dropped the ball getting me into another class and I tried several times to walk into a class but stopped trying. I got all my military issued gear turned in and Final Audit was completed this past week. Got my final physical and medical/dental completed. I EAS Sep 9th, or am suppose to and the command has said nothing either way about what is going to happen to me. My active military ID expired already .....can I really be held here without pay, access to medical care, past my EAS if the command doesn't take action and modify my EAS date?
