Lubbock County of-- District Clerk--
I am currently on a payment arrangement schedule for court cost. Due to being laid off from my employer for reasons of not enough work for 2 people, just one during winter months. I'm in landscaping. With that being said, all 4 previously payed fines were either on time, payed before and or payed over amount due. As I'm attempting to hurry and get out of the legal system. Upon having to make a late payment, and thinking it would be prudent to find out if I'll owe a late fee or what not, trying not to further my troubles. Before I was even able to get to my questions out and inform the clerk to whom she was speaking with, she hastily interrupted me with this quote on quote extremely rude comment was " if you're calling for sympathy due to losing your job and want a favor because you feel "entitled" to one. We give them to NO one, so I'm guessing your question is now answered". Hence, from the questions I had states earlier in this review. Nothing was answered with any definite rule or guild lines that have to be followed. So in short, upon trying to be a responsible, productive member of society. I was treated with nothing but contempt and insult. Burger king nor would McDonald's employees have the gall to speak with a customer the way our city employee clearly treats anyone she has to be "subjected" to, to where she seems to think that insolence and a holier than thou attitude is the best way to help out a fellow citizen of the county. I work landscaping and no way no how would you have a job after speaking with anyone the way I was spoken to. Let's hold our city employees to a higher standard of work etiquette than a traveling Carnival dunk tank clown who's sole job is to insult people. Thank you for taking the time and reading my rant and more than likely not doing a thing about it. Why would you? Clearly if they're paying a fine they must be scum and therefore are not fit to receive any common courtesy. Makes sense...
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.
