According to recent reports, the Chemical Awareness Resources and Education
recently announced that it is expanding to Collin County so that the charity
can provide services to individuals in need in Plano and Frisco. CARE
is a charity that has been providing chemical awareness resources and
education to individuals all throughout the United States for over 30
years. CARE now hopes to educate those in Plano on the dangers of drug
abuse and discourage this dangerous practice.
Many of the workers at CARE zone in on working with adolescents that struggle
with substance abuse. Care first offered its New Directions class in Collin
County in October. This is a program that is designed for teens who struggle
with substance abuse to attend with their parents. Parents and children
can learn about the health risks and legal implications associated with
underage drinking and drug use and can help people to learn about hot
to prevent addiction. The classes will continue to be offered on a regular
basis in Plano.
This program can assist individuals who have been charged with drug abuse
crimes. Oftentimes the court will respect the fact that a person is repentant
if the court can see this in action. Attending a program like CARE may
display to the courts that a defendant truly does want to make things
right, and this may result in a favorable sentence.
Oftentimes attorneys will suggest that drug crime defendants attend a class
on drug abuse voluntarily or check themselves into rehab to prove that
they are working towards a better lifestyle. This will prove that the
defendant is not a threat to society, and does not necessarily have to
be locked away. Talk with a
Plano drug defense attorney at the firm today if you want more information about drug abuse and want
to learn more about smart moves to help avoid serious sentences.
