Drug Rehabilitation As Mitigation Of Charges
Drug addiction can take over every part of a person’s life, causing one to make increasingly poor decisions that can negatively impact his or her health and overall well-being. If you or someone you love has been accused of drug possession or another crime that stems from drug addiction, it is crucial to have skilled legal counsel on your side.
At Escobar, Michaels & Associates, many of our clients suffer from drug addiction. Since our founding in 1986, our Tampa law firm has strived to get our clients the help they need while protecting their rights against serious drug-related accusations. Our combination of aggressive representation and compassionate client service has made a meaningful difference for people across Florida.
Drug rehabilitation can take two forms: outpatient treatment and residential treatment. Residential treatment involves living at a facility while undergoing counseling, group therapy and drug tests. Outpatient treatment involves many of the same elements, but does not involve living in a facility during treatment. Either form of treatment may help you break free of drug addiction.
Seeking Drug Treatment For Your Health And Reduction Of Criminal Charges
Drug rehabilitation can occur in the early stages of your case. Successful completion of drug treatment while your case is pending may demonstrate to the court that you are serious about reforming your life.
In Florida, certain charges may be eligible for pretrial intervention, or PTI. In a PTI program, your charges could be dismissed in exchange for successfully completing a treatment program. In Hillsborough County, the Drug Abuse Comprehensive Coordinating Office, or DACCO, Phoenix House, the Salvation Army and WestCare Foundation are a few that provide drug treatment programs for people in the drug pretrial intervention program. With many decades of combined experience, our attorneys can help you get the resources you need to break your addiction, while also minimizing potential criminal consequences.
