Turn on the television news almost any day and you’ll hear the stories _ people overdosing and dying from the use of fentanyl.
Use of Fentanyl and opioids is rampant both in New Hampshire and across the country. And judges and prosecutors and police officers are taking a hard line on people who are caught in possession of the highly-addictive and deadly drug.
If you’ve been arrested on possession of fentanyl charges, you’ll need to line up a criminal defense lawyer who is experienced in drug charges. Michael Anzalone understands that sometimes people get caught up in bad things and he will listen to you and try to help. His goal is to get the best possible outcome for your case and help you get back on your feet.
If you’ve been taking fentanyl or other opioids, you may also need extensive rehab. And you can consider yourself lucky if you haven’t overdosed like countless others have done. The effort to control fentanyl use is a community issue, involving lawmakers, health care officials and first responders.
In fact, health care officials have worked to make changes to stop misuse of the drug by placing stricter regulations on prescriptions. But still, it’s difficult to totally clamp down on the drug’s use.Your Case
If you’ve been charged with fentanyl possession, you may be looking at much more than jail time and hefty fines. In all likelihood, if you’ve also been taking the drug, you will need extensive rehabilitation. And the judge in your case may order such treatment along with prison time, and fines.
In addition, you’ve probably worn thin many of the relationships that you’ve had. Fentanyl use can stress even the strongest of family ties. And a conviction will put your job and future employment opportunities at risk. Your wallet will probably be hit hard as you have to pay for treatment and fees.
