Experience, empathy, professionalism and confidentiality. Our Firm understands substance abuse, alcoholism, addiction, recovery and the Law.
Why? Because we have dealt with addiction from both sides. Richard Baron and Jerry Breslin have between them over 40 years of NA/AA recovery time and over 50 years of trial experience.
Addiction is a disease - not simply bad or weak behavior - and the law recognizes it as a disease. For the family of a person out of control on drugs there is treatment available at no cost.
We understand how it feels to want to stop an action that you know is ruining your life but your afraid to stop. This, of course, makes no sense to everyone but the addict or the alcoholic who dreads using and is afraid not to use. Sooner or later the negative consequences begin. An arrest, a divorce, fired from a job, loss of friends, loss of self respect. Few people have not had someone in their lives who they watched deteriorate through alcohol or drugs.
There is help - and it works. For those seeking help for their abuse we can provide advise and support regarding treatment. For the family and friends of a person whose life is spiraling out of control, we can help. Under the Florida Marchman act we can file papers in court to have your loved one involuntarily admitted for treatment both on a short term and long term basis. The records of the treatment are strictly confidential.
