Oftentimes, alcohol and drug abuse can lead to unwanted legal consequences. Whether you, a family member or friend is facing court obligations from drug and alcohol addiction in Florida or another state, TTC Care can help.
Our court liaison program allows patients to focus on recovery while we take care of any pending legal matters that need to be addressed during treatment.
Let Us Take the Burden off Your Shoulders
Navigating the world of legalese can be extremely challenging – especially when you are amidst treatment and recovery. Drug and alcohol addiction can adversely affect a person’s ability to make sound decisions. During detox and other therapies, the brain undergoes a cleansing as the fog of addiction begins to lift. Memory can be compromised and anxiety can increase as patients restore to a healthier state of mind.
As a patient, dealing with upcoming court dates, associated fines and tickets can be confusing, overwhelming and a source for undue stress. As financial and legal issues continue to mount, patients feel the emotional pressures that follow and can minimize the positive attributes of treatment, slowing down the process of recovery and increasing the risk of relapse.
Depending on the nature of the addiction, length and severity of the disease and accompanying mental health conditions, financial predicaments may have crossed over into dire circumstances. Loss of home, runaway credit card debt and divorce may also be part of the unfortunate aftermath of addiction. Unfortunately, it can get worse.
The Consequences of Addiction Can Escalate from Civil to Criminal
Addiction, left untreated, can escalate everyday problems into lifelong punishment. As a person becomes more dependent on drugs or alcohol, the need to feed the craving for the substance grows over time – and everything else becomes unimportant.
As a result, criminal behaviors, such as theft and violence against others, present themselves with punitive outcomes. Jail time and subsequent convictions can lead to prison. While drug or alcohol rehabilitation may be a court-mandated order, more serious and pending legal issues won’t go away by themselves.
The court liaison program at TTC Care provides legal assistance in these matters, allowing treatment to roll out as it was meant to be experienced, with minimal distractions.
What Our Court Liaison Program Does
With a TTC Care court liaison representative at each patient’s side, communication and correspondence with the necessary legal parties is ongoing. Our supervising attorney helps facilitate dialogue between patients and legal representatives, so they can continue to concentrate on what’s behind their addiction and move forward through the recovery process faster.
