Clients With Legal Issues
Legal issues which often arise due to alcohol or drug use can include a variety of criminal and civil matters. Some legal problems come from an individual’s direct use of alcohol or drugs (such as D.U.I. or possession) while others come from the impaired judgment caused by alcohol or drug use. Common legal problems often facing the addict include Domestic Violence, Battery, Assault, Violation of Probation, Theft, Fraud, Tax Liability, Divorce and Child Custody, and loss of Professional Licensing. Often when charges have or will be filed against an individual who has a substance abuse problem or dual diagnosis, there are often a variety of options which may be available to such an individual as an alternative to incarceration. In many cases the court may elect to send someone to treatment as an alternative sentence. Synergy has extensive experience in dealing with both criminal and civil cases.
