First of all, well done - I hope you're doing OK. Does your company have a drugs policy? You might be able to judge their likely reaction from that. Some bigger companies have a confidentiality policy as well.
It might be beneficial to ask your question in the law section on here as I assume you should have some protection.
Have you asked your counsellor for advice on this?
Sorry, more questions than answers! I really wish you well.
mate.....i was a coke user for a while two years ago after the break of of a eight year relationship...i also lost an excellant job.......i never come clean about my problems and just kept it all in and it took me almost two years to overcome this stage of my life.......point is: i went for a new job two months ago (my lifes on track now by the way) and low and behold it was the same company (and manager) that let me go during my bad spell two years ago.......The company told me i should have told them about my issues at the time and i may not have lost the job at all.......I now work for them again.

so my advice is tell them....they will see youve seeked help which proves you want to sort yourself out.....if it backfires dont worry....a new jjob and a new you is around the corner...good luck
