During the hearing, the RN states that rom cluster headaches in 2012 for which she was prescribed Vicodin. The headaches got to a point where Vicodin wasn’t strong enough.

After being caught by the facility the RN called TPAPN and began their program. She finished her two years in TPAPN without any difficulty.
