If you are addicted to opiates like Oxycontin, Oxycodone or Heroin and have small children, you are at great risk of having them taken away by DCF.
Recently, here in Sarasota a woman was found overdosed on heroin in the bathroom of a Wawa convenience store. Her four year old child was with her. Fortunately, prompt police action saved her life but now she has been charged with child neglect. I had another case recently where a mother overdosed and died in the bath tub after using heroin with her infant child steps away. There is a bad batch of heroin in the Sarasota Manatee area. It is laced with another drug and people are dropping like flies and dying from overdoses.
If you are a “user”, you need to get help before it is too late.
If you end up killing yourself with an overdose, you child will be left an orphan and you will have destroyed a life. Most of the heroin users here in Sarasota are former pill users who have switched to the cheaper and easier to get Mexican brown heroin. The problem is that most of the heroin on the street now is laced with other powerful drugs that will absolutely kill you.
If you have been arrested for heroin possession or morphine possession, you need legal help as well as medical help. Drug addiction is a sickness that causes you to come into contact with the legal system.
As a Sarasota and Bradenton criminal defense lawyer, my job is to get you help. You need help in the Courts and you need help with your addiction. I realize that you may be in denial of you dependency but the simple fact is, you have to get help. Drug Court is a great option here in Sarasota and it has a great success rate. You can get help. Life is not hopeless.
