false record of health history

It was the week before I was going to apply for the NCLEX and I decided to go all out on drugs as a final goodbye. To grow and become an adult, FINALLY! Never did LSD and took it to try it, along with snorting stuff my cousins brought to the table. Of course, I end up in the hospital because i can't fathom the distorted reality I was in. I had a "bad trip" and called the cops who laughed at me and told me they could either take me to the hospital or I could call a friend. I actually chose the hospital. An ambulance took me to the hospital that I work at... I am actually about to start preceptoring there... well the doctor who saw me decided I had an actual drug problem. She diagnosed me with a substance disorder. referred me for treatment. I'm appalled that she diagnosed me with this. It will follow me for the rest of my life, will it not? as a nurse, we read pt's histories and I judge those who have that on their record. what am I to do? I think I fucked up my life doing this. And in order to apply for the NCLEX, they ask if you've ever been referred to a drug treatment program... what do I do?
