Criminal Justice Solutions
I had one of the worst experiences with the justice system ever here. I was supposed to get evaluated after completing courses for my simple marijuana possession charge. When I got there my counselor left for a smoke break even tho he doesn't smoke. I was left to fill out a test with an office clerk who had never evaluated anyone before. After I turned my test in I thought he would at least talk to me then but he just told me I had to come back and pay more money. They just work in tandem with the da's office to get more money out of u. In all I payed $200 to enroll in the program,$300 for the program, $285 to take my evaluation test and drug test, and another 300 to come back after this latest experience for who knows what cause I wasn't informed. I also saw that I could have taken the test online but no one informed me of that either. Bottom line id just get a lawyer before spending this type of money. And if ur arrested u still have to pay for the arrest record expungement.

This is a good program. I loved everything but my doctor. She sucked. Dr. Susan Julius. She wouldnt give me her undivided attention for our appointments. Constantly put words in my mouth, because she wasn't paying attention. I never relapsed during the program. She had no trust in me when I was a a+ attendee. She also likes to push drugs on people. One of the newcomers who also had her, went to the hospital after taking all the drugs she pushed on him, the next day! STAY AWAY FROM DOCTOR SUSAN JULIUS, LOOK UP HER RECORD, IT'S INSANE!
Tips & Advices
If you don't have insurance, you may be able to find outpatient programs like Narcotics Anonymous that offer counseling and meetings for patients at no cost.
Some facilities accept health insurance like United Healthcare, BlueCross BlueShield, Cigna, Humana and Medicaid. Many carriers support in-state assessment, detox and outpatient treatment. Some also partially cover residential or inpatient treatment. Because drug addiction is considered a disease, major health insurance providers must treat it like any other chronic condition that requires medical treatment. Be sure to inquire about co-pays and deductibles so you don't receive a surprise bill months after you start a program.
Yes. Some treatment programs promote quick sobriety through seemingly impossible means, such as herbal supplements or religious affiliation. Be wary of questionable claims like, "Shake your drug addiction in one week!" If the advertising sounds too good to be true, the program could potentially be a scam. Instead, look for organizations that include approval and certification from real doctors and health care providers.
Yes. Attending a program that is specific to your drug of choice will make your treatment much more likely to be impactful and successful.  Some provide certain users with medications like Valium and Xanax to counteract symptoms of distress associated with alcohol or drug withdrawals. You may not want to attend such programs if you fear that you may instead become addicted to these substances.
Yes. A physician can determine how severe your addiction is, which will help you decide if you want to try inpatient or outpatient treatment. He or she can also consider any withstanding health issues such as psychiatric conditions that should be factored into your decision. Next, check out facilities and programs that offer treatment for the substances that you abuse.
