This is where having criminal defense attorney Michael Anzalone by your side can help.


Xanax is a drug that is often prescribed for people who are experiencing some kind of anxiety. But it’s in high demand on the illegal drug list. And it could be highly dangerous if it’s used for anything other than to treat anxiety and panic disorders or anxiety caused by depression.

People who use illegal prescription drugs can face hefty fines and long prison sentences.

And, if you’ve been taking prescription drugs illegally, you might need to have extensive rehabilitation. The judge in your case may actually sentence you to rehab programs that can be quite costly. And much of that cost will be paid by you.

This is why the prescription drug epidemic is a community effort, involving the health industry, the court system and law enforcement.
