Court Liaison Services
“But with you there is forgiveness, so that we can, with reverence, serve you.”
About Court Liaison Services in Addiction Treatment
Most people struggling with addiction tend to avoid entering rehab for as long as possible. This could be due to denial, shame, guilt or any negative feeling that involves accepting that addiction has taken over. However, the legal and financial repercussions of addiction are another major reason why so many addicted individuals don’t come forward for treatment.
Developing an addiction to drugs or alcohol can have substantial legal consequences like DUIs, arrests for possession, or other similar drug-related charges— charges which need to be handled with the utmost focus. Even if this was not the case, some people who struggle with addiction may avoid treatment purely out of dedication to dealing with other legal proceedings such as divorce, custody hearings, property management or other more financially-driven issues that require immediate attention. With drug and alcohol addiction encompassing so much of an addicted individual’s life, it’s no wonder that people in recovery are in such desperate need of special addiction treatment programs like court liaison services.
Thankfully, since most state and local governments today seem to recognize addiction as a disease, more options are being made available to those who need a way of handling legal affairs while fighting for their sobriety. This is why the implementation of court liaison services is so important in addiction treatment. These liaisons can advocate on your behalf in court during your addiction treatment so that you can focus on your recovery by getting the help and treatment you need.
The Benefits of a Court Liaison Program During Addiction Treatment
It’s an unfortunate truth that many people who struggle with addiction often get caught up on the wrong side of the legal system. This can be especially hard on Christians who are already struggling to maintain a relationship with God as a result of addition. If you who have legal woes due to past or present run-ins with the law— dealing with legal issues, court dates, case management or probation violations— a court liaisons program can help facilitate the process for you during addiction treatment.
Substance abuse recovery is difficult even in the best of circumstances, but dealing with legal obligations concurrently can make it difficult to focus on recovery and rehabilitation. Court liaison programs are designed to take stress off of patients in recovery with regards to all their legal issues. Through a court liaison program, communications with the appropriate legal parties is made simple for patients so they can successfully focus on and complete their addiction treatment without any delays. The main purpose of our court liaison services is to give our clients peace of mind: when our patients know that their legal and financial issues are in good hands, they can shift their focus to committing to recovery.
The Court Liaison Program at Road to Freedom
Road to Freedom takes a unique approach to treating substance abuse addiction. Rather than focusing only on the symptoms of the addiction, the councilors and staff at Road to Freedom address all the needs of our individual patients, ranging from mental and physical to spiritual. We follow the philosophy that patients in recovery are worth more than their addictions and should be treated as such. We also understand that many of our patients come to us with legal issues that require immediate attention following their enrollment into rehabilitative addiction treatment. This is what makes the court liaison services available at Road to Freedom such a valuable asset to anyone who enters treatment already facing imminent legal and financial problems.
