Marchman Act

Hire A Lawyer Recognized by Therapists and Treatment Specialists as an Expert in The Marchman Act and Substance Abuse Legal Issues

There are millions of people with substance abuse problems. Everyone knows someone who has been affected by this terrible affliction. If you have a family member with a substance abuse problem, you are not without options.  While your loved one with the problem is often unable to perceive that there is a problem and can remain in denial for a long time, the law provides help to the substance abuser and his family.

The first step in helping a person who is abusing substances is to bring awareness of the problem to light. Shedding light on the problem is something that you have likely been attempting for some time now. If talking to your loved one is not working, you can take additional steps to protect yourself and your loved one from the devastating effects of substance abuse.
