Many people who live with addiction end up controlled by the disease. You may never have intended for your life to take this path, but all too soon, you lost control over your actions because a drug had taken over. You may have tried to keep your situation as off the radar as possible, but for one reason or another, police officers became suspicious of you.
Now, your addiction has led to you facing criminal charges for drug possession. Though in some sense you likely felt like your life was already out of control, you may now feel as if you have even less of a grasp on your affairs. You may immediately begin to think the worst about your situation, but you may want to remember that you can fight back against drug-related charges.
