    It means you have to pass some sort of test for a chemical dependency (drugs, alcohol). You take the test and then go over the results.

    Without following the link, which I don't want to do, this is what I take from this statement:

    You want to enter addiction counseling. You need the grades and the addiction to enter counseling, as well as a criminal record :eek:
