The prevalence of drug usage these days has many people thinking that facing drug charges isn’t a big deal. The fact of the matter is that even if the drug charges are misdemeanors, they are still a mark on your criminal record if you are convicted of the charge.
We understand that drug charges aren’t always as simple as they seem. In the case of a person who is facing drug possession charges, dealing with the addiction must happen. Without getting help for the addiction, there is a chance that more criminal charges will follow.
There are some cases that involve other charges, such as theft. In these cases, the underlying drug addiction is the fuel for the actions. This means that you will still need to get help for the addiction.
In a recent blog post, we discussed the drug court program. This is one way that people who have a drug problem can get help for that issue. Since this is a court supervised program, many participants will take it seriously. This enables them to address the addiction while they are also handling the criminal matter.
