On behalf of Michael A. Gottlieb, P.A. posted in drug possession on Thursday, October 13, 2016.
If you are found to have drugs of any sort in your possession, you might end up facing drug possession charges. These charges can be very serious, so you need to fight back against them. We know that there are sometimes circumstances behind drug charges that can’t really be helped.
Think about this — a person who has a drug addiction might hear that they need to get off the drugs. Until someone gives them the tools they need to do so at a time when they have the desire to do so, the problem will likely persist. That can mean that the person will keep going around and around the revolving door of drug charges until they can get clean.
We know that drug addicts who want to get clean might not have the help they need to do so. While we can’t promise that we will be able to offer a solution, we can promise to explore possible solutions with the defendant.
For some people who are facing drug charges in Florida, drug court is a possible solution. Drug court focuses on addressing the addiction and helping to hold the person accountable for their sobriety. That could be the push that an addict needs to get clean.
We understand that you might have some questions about drug court. If this is something that you are interested in, we can help you to understand what it entails. We can also help you to learn about whether you are eligible or not. Finally, we can help you petition to enter the program if you think it is something that will help you.
