Drug Rehab Center Abuse Cases
Forty million Americans ages 12 and older suffer from addiction, a disease affecting more Americans than heart conditions, diabetes or cancer. (Columbia, 2012) As more and more Americans are succumbing to the disease of alcohol and drug addiction, rehabilitation and treatment of addiction is becoming an expansive and lucrative industry.
However, these facilities that are setup to care for our loved ones as they attempt to gain control over their addiction can be enablers for addiction or not provide adequate care resulting in legal action needing to be taken. Drug and alcohol treatment recovery facilities are particularly prevalent in the Orange and Los Angeles counties and Lanzone Morgan, LLP has filed lawsuits against these types of facilities on behalf of family members.
We File Lawsuits Against Drug Rehab Centers On Behalf of Families
People with substance abuse problems and their loved ones often turn to drug and alcohol “rehabilitation” centers as a last resort, desperate for a safe environment attended by experts in addiction recovery and the mental disorders associated with addiction and substance abuse. Drug and alcohol rehab centers often make grand promises of treating both addiction and metal disorders, but consistently fail to deliver on either promise.
Instead of finding the help they desperately need, patients and their families are often finding programs that are disorganized, understaffed, staffed by unqualified employees, devoid of any expert care, lacking in safe-guards to protect patients from relapse, and failing to treat co-occurring mental disorders.
The failings of these programs can have tragic consequences. Some patients relapse and suffer deadly overdoses. Others have been driven to take their own lives.
