Illegal drugs on record - Potential Career Issues?

I have searched the forum and can't find the answer to this question. I used drugs in my younger years, around 10 years ago, and had to seek assistance so it was on my record. I declared this at my Class 2 Initial and subsequently went through the 2 years of hair tests and an interview with a psychologist, specialising in addiction medicine. The CAA issued me a class 2 medical.
I am now considering a pilot career and was wondering if I get my class 1, will this be an issue in the selection process or interview? Or is the Class 1 medical deemed the final word on your health when going for a job? I know people recommend getting a Class 1 before going through the ATPL exams but will this be an issue further along the process? Your experience and advice at interviews and or company medical exams will be greatly appreciated.
