Drug Possession & Drug Diversion Programs in Florida
Possession of a controlled substance is the most common drug charge that is usually classified as a misdemeanor for smaller amounts but can also become a felony with larger amounts that suggest an intent to distribute. If you are a first-time offender, The Legal Justice Center can help determine if a Diversion or Drug Court Program is available for your case. With diversion, you can maintain a clean criminal record as long as you enter into and successfully complete a drug court program.
Here are some of the requirements in entering these programs:
- Payment fee to the court and the treatment facility
- Attend classes and vocational training required by the judicial court
- Participate in individual or group therapy
- Perform community service work
- Payment of restitution if victims are involved
Drug diversion programs can last from a few months to a year. Upon successful completion of a Diversion or Drug Court Program, the criminal drug charge is dismissed.
