If you face drug charges, it is extremely important that you work with experienced criminal defense attorneys.
A recent report by the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (http://www.samhsa.gov/) shows a significant increase in drug use among people between the ages of 18 to 25 years old. The data shows a steady increase in the particular use of marijuana and prescription painkillers. Recreational use of alcohol and drugs can lead to a serious addiction problem.
While addiction to drugs and alcohol is treatable, research shows that less than 3 million people are getting treatment out of an estimated 23 million individuals who suffer from drug addiction in the U.S. (that’s over 7% of the U.S. population). You should know that drug addiction is an illness and that there are many options and effective treatments available.
Realistically, many people who have a drug addiction will end up facing drug criminal charges. In fact, Law Enforcement makes more arrests for drug abuse violations than for any other offense. This year, over 1.6 million Americans will be arrested for violating a drug law – that’s an arrest every 19 seconds, 24/7, 365 days a year!
