More Help for Teens

One of the most profound programs in Irvine to prevent teens from succumbing to peer pressure includes D.A.R.E, which means Drug Abuse Resistance Education. The program is enforced by the Irvine Police Unit, where collaborations are made with local schools. This helps to educate and equip students with guidance for counteracting pressure to participate in drug crimes, gangs, alcohol use or other criminal activities.

Many Irvine criminal defense attorneys will argue that instead of sending a drug addict to prison or jail, a better option would be to enroll the offender into counseling or rehabilitation programs. This however depends on the circumstances of the case, and whether someone accused was found in possession of drugs for personal use or for sale. Drug education programs are only available for those caught in possession for personal use.

If you or someone you know has been accused of a drug crime in Irvine, contact the drug crimes attorneys at MacGregor and Collins at (949) 250-6097. We will help to get the best outcome for your case.
