As a Torrance Criminal Defense Attorney for 20 years I have had many clients needing help for various substance abuse problems, whether it be alcohol, illicit drugs, prescription pills, you name it. Often finding help can be a challenge, particularly when financial limitations exist.
For many, a good resource is a website called SAMHSA this drug and alcohol treatment center helps connect people in need with resources, clinics, treatment providers, hospitals and counselors. In many instances a person can help there criminal case by seeking treatment early and voluntarily.
Judges and District Attorneys will respond favorably to people who sincerely recognize that they have a problem which may have led to their current predicament.
