Top Florida Marchman Act Lawyer Here to Protect Your Loved Ones From Addiction
In this day and age, the impact of addiction and substance abuse is unavoidable.
Fortunately, Florida’s Marchman Act is a powerful piece of legislation that permits the
involuntary commitment of an individual suffering from substance abuse disorder.
Passed in 1993, the Marchman Act requires a petition to be filed and reviewed. The Court can then order the assessment of an individual for up to five days, followed by 90 days of involuntary commitment. And, protected under federal HIPPA laws, all treatment remains confidential.
If your loved one needs treatment – and either won’t go into treatment, or won’t stay in treatment – we can help you. Treatment is not a magic pill, but your loved one’s chances of experiencing the miracle of recovery are significantly increased if they go into treatment.
Should an individual leave treatment prior to completion, they can be held in contempt and the court can use jail time as leverage to get them back into treatment.
The Marchman Act saves lives! And, it’s essential that the friends, family, and loved ones of those with a substance abuse disorder are aware of their options. At Drug and Alcohol Attorneys, our Marchman Attorney, Mark Astor, has helped thousands in Florida get the treatment they so badly need, and has saved countless lives in the process.
