You need to be as level headed as you can. This happened before your probation and the start of the rehab ordered in your sentence.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
eventually the January thru March stuff will be found out
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
in FLorida they have a new law that even I extra narc script within 30 days will get reported to the police by the pharmacy
Criminal Lawyer: Colleen Grady, Attorney and Counselor at Law replied 1 year ago

And perhaps they will see it as part of the problem that led to your DUI and that you need help and rehab.

You need to wait and see what happens. They may not charge you. Just follow what you need to do on probation. Get counseling and support. You are thinking too far into the future.
