It's never to late, Break the Addiction

Court Services

At Sprout Health New Jersey, we are completely aware of the challenges that people face when making the decision to seek treatment.

Substance abuse and addiction are quite often accompanied by a legal component. Good Samaritan Laws are recognized in many states, including New Jersey. These laws serve to waive legal consequences for those willing to admit themselves into an addiction treatment program. The fact remains that individuals can sometimes use their substance abuse or mental state as a strategy for defense in certain cases. Such information may help reduce the severity of charges faced by the individual.

Even with legal safeguards in place, it can be difficult for a person to admit to a drug use problem. At Sprout Health New Jersey, we are completely aware of the challenges that people face when making the decision to seek treatment. As such, we strive to provide individuals with effective treatment while working within the complexity of their situation.

The Benefits of Seeking Addiction Treatment

For a person facing misdemeanor or felony charges, that has been diagnosed as having a substance abuse addiction, it may prove beneficial to seek addiction or psychological treatment while awaiting sentencing, if possible. In any event, it may prove beneficial in some cases where the court’s judgment may include therapy and treatment for the addiction as part of the defendant’s punishment. These options may be more prevalent where drug or alcohol-related crimes have been committed, and mental health conditions are a consideration.

Often, individuals are deterred from further engaging in risky behaviors once there is a run-in with the law. Risking further legal ramifications is sometimes enough for them to realize their addiction may be causing serious damage to their lives and social relationships. For those that continue down the path of addiction, crime, assault, and arrests can follow. This tends to keep perpetuating their desire to abuse substances while anxiety and mental illness can reign supreme.

When consulting with a defense attorney, it may be a wise decision to pursue professional treatment for an addiction. Of course, it is always prudent to consult with your attorney before taking any steps. The reality is that addiction treatment can also be portrayed in other ways. Your lawyer would be able to advise. On the other hand, seeking addiction treatment is generally looked upon as a serious commitment to hold one’s self-accountable, and to move forward in life. It is a good thing if a sentence can be reduced, or some other concession reached as a result of clinical treatment.
