Substance Abuse Disorder Scholarship

Substance Abuse Disorder Scholarship

As a criminal defense attorney, Todd A. Kawecki has provided representation to numerous individuals in drug-related cases. It’s important to recognize that the individuals facing these charges are often not inherently bad people, but rather individuals grappling with drug addiction.

With nearly 20 million American adults contending with substance abuse disorders, and approximately 38% facing illicit drug use disorders, it’s evident that this issue affects a significant portion of the population. Often, the critical distinction between overcoming addiction and spiraling into financial and personal turmoil lies in receiving support from loved ones.
