The 5 Steps to Get the Best Result For Your NJ Drug Charge:
- Determine whether you are addicted to a substance. Unfortunately drugs such as heroin, cocaine, crystal meth or crack just 3 or 4 times can make you addicted. Marijuana if you have used it 12 times in the last 3 months your considered addicted.
- Call our office and setup an appointment to get a defense for your drug charge.
- Stop using the drug immediately or if addicted wean your self slowly off the drug
- If using cocaine, crack, meth or heroin immediately check yourself into a drug rehab clinic. We can suggest a program, but you must find a program you are comfortable with otherwise it won't work. Remember if you try to quit cold turkey you could be risking your life as the natural body drug detox could be life threatening and can be very painful.
- Remember you have an addiction, you could relapse. The key with cocaine, heroin, meth or crack is to not give up. These addictions are very hard to end, but with proper support from your friends and family it is not impossible.
