Valrico Drug Lawyer: They just need help…

This is one of the most common statements and explanations from parents, friends and relatives of someone convicted with a drug offense to their Valrico Drug Lawyer.  Generally, they repeatedly express their concerns that a long jail or prison sentence will not cure them of their addiction or give them the coping mechanisms to avoid the reoccurring temptations of convictions to their Valrico Drug Lawyers.  The overwhelming majority of the time their concern comes from the heart and their true desire that they get well.  Unfortunately, Florida courts have not historically have not approached drug treatment as a proper sentence for a drug offense.

Our Tampa drug lawyers take pride in working to find creative and unique solutions for getting those accused of a drug problem the help they need.  We have utilized our long standing relationships with many drug treatment rehab facilities, including DACCO, which serves the greater Tampa Bay Area, and the programs specifically offered by the Polk County Jail.  Generally, the Polk County State Attorney’s Office is open to programs only offered within their county jail administered by the Polk County Sheriff’s Office.

These programs are recognized by the State Attorney’s Office and Florida Department of Corrections for their security, effectiveness and reliability.  They will also often consider offering a departure from the Florida criminal score sheet sentence because of the effectiveness of these programs among other reasons.

Our Tampa drug lawyers have strong relationship with drug treatment facilities throughout the area.  Our connections will assist your loved one in getting the help they need quickly and as cost affordable as possible.   Fortunately, Florida courts are becoming more receptive to drug rehabilitation programs as a means of mitigating prison sentences.  Often times, these rehabilitation services can be performed in lieu of jail as a condition of probation.
