Legal Advocacy

Chemical dependency, by its very nature, often leads good people to make poor choices that land them in trouble with the law. New Life understands that often, with a little help, these criminal addicts can amend their behavior and become law-abiding citizens.

For those who find themselves facing criminal charges, New Life provides legal advocacy. Our Court Liaisons attend court with our clients and advocate for their opportunity to participate in a drug or alcohol recovery program that can teach them a new way to live that will keep them out of the judicial system.

We are State Licensed, and CARF Accredited and have an excellent reputation in the Northern California judicial system as well as many other judicial systems around the country. We work closely with the district attorney, lawyers, public defenders, judges, and probation officers to insure our clients are in programs where they can get the help they need.
