Substance Abuse Disorder Scholarship

As a criminal defense attorney, Todd A Kawecki has represented hundreds of individuals in drug-related cases. In most circumstances, the people who face these charges are not bad individuals but rather are suffering from drug addiction.

Nearly 20 million American adults are battling with a substance abuse disorder. Around 38% of adults battled an illicit drug use disorder. In many cases, the difference between making a recovery from addiction and falling into financial and personal despair is getting support from loved ones.
