Drug Rehabilitation Resources
As you may know all too well, drugs are a powerful poison, with the potential to take over your entire life. Drug addiction is now recognized in the medical community as a chronic disease. It may begin voluntarily, but spirals into something that is no longer your choice. Often, the necessity to continue supporting a drug habit requires criminal behavior, and the mere possession of many drugs in New Jersey can lead to charges for possession of a controlled dangerous substance, or possession with intent to distribute. When you are charged with possession or distribution of marijuana , cocaine , heroin , prescription drugs , or another illegal substance, it can serve as a painful but necessary wake-up call. Fortunately, New Jersey provides alternatives to incarceration for first-time drug offenders in the form of diversionary programs such as Conditional Discharge and Drug Court. The drug court program in particular provides defendants with the opportunity to enter drug rehabilitation, where they can receive the treatment they need to get clean, as opposed to punishing them with an unproductive term in prison.

Monmouth and Ocean County NJ Drug Rehabilitation Information
I should be sitting in prison right now on a 5 YEAR sentence, BUT here I am in the free world! Thank You Tara! I am so grateful for Tara’s belief in me and her determination at what she does. I was arrested with a huge amount of narcotics and where I was arrested made the charges doubled with MANDATORY jail time. Further more I had struggled with the criminal life for a decade; any previous attempts of me changing my life never seemed possible. I was sitting in jail when my family was willing to give me one more chance and said they hired Tara Breslow. I was bailed out and went to rehab and my family was keen on following Tara’s suggestions, and I was right on board with them.
Tara would consistently call me in rehab and check in on me, asked how I was doing and I would tell her how I am making progress. It made me feel good knowing that is the person who is fighting for my life. THERE is NO ONE ELSE I ‘D RATHER HAVE IN MY CORNER! She stood up for me, and was in-tune with my progress since she formed a relationship with me. She wrote letters for me, spoke to people, and went ABOVE and BEYOND what I had ever seen or heard of any lawyer doing. Now here I am; Not in jail, Working a great job, Back n college and a PART OF MY FAMILY! I write all this hoping that someone will be able to relate to the despair I had and see how someones life can change with the help and guidance of people who are placed in our lives to perform MIRACLES! And Tara Breslow did just that for me! – Rachel
