When Prescription Drugs Become An Addiction
Prescription drug addiction is a trap that many people fall into. When a doctor prescribes a drug such as OxyContin or oxycodone to deal with pain from surgery or another medical issue, the patient may not understand how easily he or she can become addicted to the drug. Once a person no longer has access to legitimate refills, he or she may find illegal ways to keep taking the drug.
If you have been charged with a prescription drug offense, the most important step you can take is securing the counsel of an experienced criminal defense attorney. We will carefully evaluate the circumstances of your arrest for defenses. Many arrests follow a vehicle stop, followed by a search and seizure of drug evidence. If police violated your Fourth Amendment rights, the drug evidence may be suppressed and the charges dismissed.
As part of an effective defense, we will analyze your case for applicability of all programs, including:
We will also work to prevent asset forfeitures related to the arrest.
