Substance Abuse Questions

What is substance abuse?

Substance abuse is also referred to as drug abuse. Substance abuse is a type of individual in which uses drug in large amounts that is either not approved or supervised by a doctor. Substance abuse does not deal with mood or psycho medications. When an individual uses narcotics, stimulants, depressants, hallucinogens and even huffing glue and paint can all be considered substance abuse. When an individual has been abusing drugs, this is normally from individuals who have impulsive behaviors. Read below where individuals have come to the Experts about their substance abuse questions.

I had a substance abuse problem that resulted from an injury. During that time I sold a vehicle that I still owed a balance on. Is there any option I may have to retrieve this car since I still am making payments on this car?

In some cases, the individual who has sold the car may need to contact the individual who has bought the vehicle. This way the two individuals can work out a payment plan in order for the one who bought the car to continue to own the vehicle.

My neighbors are substance abusers. They are very noisy, and have suspected drug traffic day and night. The police haven’t helped. Apart from moving what can I do legally to live in peace?

You have a few options that might help. First you may continue to file complaints with local police. You may sue for nuisance and seek an injunction. Or you may complain to the HOA (Home Owners Association,) if there is one available in your area. If you choose to sue in District Court you should probably hire a lawyer. Not only will you need your own testimony, you will also need witnesses, and any other communications that you can gather.

If a person has prepaid for substance abuse treatment but is discharged from the facility due to violation of conduct before the agreed time is the individual entitled to a refund?

If a written agreement was signed as part of the admissions process then you should look at it and see if it says anything about no refunds for a code of conduct violation, if it does then no refund has to be issued.

If a MD (Medical Doctor,) knows that their spouse has a substance abuse problem but still prescribes pills is this a misdemeanor or a felony?

In most cases simply knowing that the spouse has a substance abuse problem is not itself a crime, however if the doctor is prescribing medications to the spouse that the doctor knows are not medically necessary, In most states that would be a felony.

I have a substance abuse problem and am in outpatient treatment. I have given temporary guardianship to my mother. Is there any way I can get custody of my children back, or even unsupervised visitation while going through treatment?

In most cases it is unlikely that the court would terminate the temporary guardianship until you have successfully completed the treatment program. However your chances of getting some type of unsupervised visitation are good if you can have your treatment provider give you a written opinion of your improvements in the outpatient program.

While substance abuse laws vary from state to state, knowing the laws and your rights is one of the best ways to start to pull away from the many different forms of substance abuse. In almost every neighborhood in the United States substance abuse is running rampant. Destroying families and lives, imbedding seeds of destruction whenever and wherever it lands.

  • Hi, I am seeking advice with the below matter. At the end

    Hi,
    I am seeking advice with the below matter.
    At the end of November this year I have purchased a puppy via online platform and I am expecting for him to be shipped this week. I have paid for him the full price and was just expecting for him to be delivered. However, the health report was disclosed to me today that the puppy has has a preflight condition otherwise known as an undescended testicle; which may or may not be a congenital or hereditary disorder. They have asked me to sign puppy disclosure waiver in which I will agree to accept this preflight condition and hereby grant the breeder full and final release of all claims that I have or could have had in full settlement and satisfaction for the disclosed preflight issues and as sole consideration for the final release and discharge of all actions, claims and demands whatsoever, that now exist, or may hereafter accrue.
    Is this something I should be forced to sign? I have also signed the purchase contract in which I agreed that if I decide to cancel anytime before the shipping, I will have to pay an admin fee.
    Can you please advise me what are my rights in this situation?
