Recreational drug use can lead to serious addiction

The holidays are coming up and for many, which means it's party time. And the people of Baton Rouge know how to party. In the coming weeks, there will be ample opportunity to get together with friends and celebrate as another year draws to a close.

But for some, hard partying is not simply something that is done during specific times of the year, but rather it is a way of life. Unfortunately, such a lifestyle can exact a heavy toll. It is easy to see how someone who wants to keep the good times going could end up being trapped in a cycle of substance abuse.

It is all too easy for recreational drug use to develop into full blown addictions. Frequent consumption of drugs, such as cocaine, amphetamines or heroin, can alter the body's natural chemical balance. Eventually, the body begins to depend on the drugs.

As a result, people in the throes of drug addiction will dedicate much of their time to satisfying their cravings. In fact, if they try to quit using drugs, they could suffer very serious withdrawal symptoms.

It is not uncommon for someone who is caught on the treadmill of addiction to make mistakes. Among those mistakes could be keeping drugs in their possession, which can make them vulnerable to arrest if stopped and searched by the police.

Being arrested on drug charges can have a long-term negative impact on your life, but so can addiction. Attorney Steven J. Moore understands the issues faced by those who have been arrested for drug possession. He is familiar with the Baton Rouge court system and given your circumstances, he may be able to help get your charges reduced or get you into a treatment program in lieu of receiving a jail sentence.
