I’m on probation right now and I had a moment of weakness which caused me to use, I want to help myself by signing into a rehab and prevent this from happening again, but I’m scared I’ll be put in jail for doing so and I don’t know what to do or how to go about helping myself without harming myself. Please help me? I just became a first time mom 4 months ago, and I wanna do right by my child, but I’m afraid they’ll take me away from my baby and call child services, and all I want to do is straighten out my life for my kid so I can move on without dragging things out and leave my demons in my past. Do you have any advice for me?
Yes, you can still go to jail. But rehab is not usually going to hurt. Talk to a local defense lawyer about the best way to handle the situation.
