Treatment Can Reduce Sentences

Over the years, we have seen people in trouble with the law going to treatment and getting their sentence reduce and even some charges removed.

The whole idea into this is simple. Court knows that the person will not get help in jail. Furthermore, the fact that the person is getting help means he is starting to take responsibility for his addiction. They know that the underlying issue behind the criminal acts that they committed is their addiction.

As a family sometimes it is thought that the person will only go to treatment to avoid jail. It can be true but do not worry. A good treatment will do the job to rehabilitate the person and get them to see that a drug-free life is much better.

Treatment facilities will coordinate with court before, during and after the program.

DRS can help you find a good treatment for a loved one who is in trouble with the law.

More Info

Marcel Gemme has been helping people struggling with addiction for over 19 years. He first started as an intake counselor for a drug rehabilitation center in 2000. During his 5 years as an intake counselor, he helped many addicts get the treatment they needed. He also dealt with the families and friends of those people; he saw first-hand how much strain addiction puts on a family and how it can tear relationships apart. With drug and alcohol problems constantly on the rise in the United States and Canada, he decided to use the Internet as a way to educate and help many more people in both those countries. This was 15 years ago. Since then, Marcel has built two of the largest websites in the U.S. and Canada which reach and help millions of people each year. He is an author and a leader in the field of drug and alcohol addiction. His main focus is threefold: education, prevention and rehabilitation. To this day, he still strives to be at the forefront of technology in order to help more and more people.
