Addiction and substance abuse are serious problems that affect nearly every aspect of a person’s life. If you have an addiction or abuse problem or know a loved one who does, you no doubt worry about the impact the abuse is having on his or her life. Even those who want to get clean struggle and relapse, sometimes repeatedly, until they get the right help.
Compounding the problem are the legal repercussions that may occur.
