Find out if your loved one qualifies for a Recovery Treatment Program instead of jail or prison time, or qualifies for a downward departure from mandatory sentencing guidelines.

The fee for this service is only $250.

If a client is evaluated with a mental health problem as well as addiction issues they qualify for consideration of a sentence lower than the minimum mandatory guidelines and consideration for a recovery treatment program

Upon retaining our services ($250 credit card, check, cash), a Florida Board Certified Mental Health Professional will enter the detention facility where your family member is located to conduct a full addictions and mental health assessment. Within 48hrs we will prepare an assessment evaluation report, and forward it to the client’s legal representative.

If the client does have an addiction and/or mental health problem, this will allow the attorney to request the State to consider an in-patient treatment center as an alternative to jail or prison time.

If a client has both addiction and mental health issues and has committed a crime that will not qualify them for release to a treatment center, the assessment evaluation report will qualify them for consideration from the judge for lower then minimum mandatory guidelines at time of sentencing.
