Should someone wait until being sentenced in a Georgia drug case to get help for a substance abuse problem?
No. No one should wait until they get sentenced to try to seek help for a substance abuse problem. Many times, a substance abuse problem will manifest itself with an encounter with the criminal justice system. And so if you are arrested or a loved one is arrested, you don’t need to wait. And we tell our clients nothing is gained by waiting for the resolution of the case to seek help.
