Cleveland Drug Lawyers for Possession of Prescription Drugs
Unfortunately, many people commonly become addicted to prescribed drugs like OxyContin or Vicodin. Severe addiction may, at times, lead to the forging of prescriptions or "doctor shopping" in order to obtain the prescription drug that one desires.
In Ohio, possession of a prescription substance, or the unlawful pursuit thereof is often considered a felony. The good news is that many counties in Ohio provide drug intervention and diversion programs that provide for dismissal of the charge upon successful completion of a drug rehabilitation related program. Our Cleveland Drug Possession Lawyers can assist you to obtain admission into these types of programs. After you have completed the program we can expunge the case and seal the records so that there is no legal record concerning your drug charges.
