The CAST team often provides alternative sentencing, helping clients reduce DUI sentences and drug sentences. We serve as client advocates to the court systems, helping clients fight for addiction treatment instead of jail time. We believe that addicts benefit much more from our treatment than jail for addiction related offenses. We are happy to help individuals reduce drug sentences and achieve recovery, rather than continuing the cycle of jail and addiction.
Drug and DUI sentence reductions and alternative sentencing are popular services of CAST and we have achieved many successful alternative sentences for our clients. Here is an except from our program page:
“CAST’s alternative sentencing program offers several services for individuals with legal problems- particularly drug sentences and DUI sentences. The CAST staff negotiates with the justice system at all stages of the legal process. CAST clients have the benefit of an advocate to accompany them to court appearances, probation hearings, and other court mandated appointments. The CAST program has long standing relationships with reputable attorneys to facilitate admission to recovery programs instead of incarceration. We believe that clients with drug sentences and DUI sentences often benefit more from treatment than jail. Our goal is to help clients stay out of prison and become accountable and responsible. We provide structure and monitoring so our clients can achieve long-term recovery.”
