Pass Casey's Law in NYS: An Involuntary Treatment Act For Those Who Suffer From Addiction
This petition had 208 supporters
My name is Connie and I live in Saratoga County, New York. I am starting this petition to help drug addicted people who wont help themselves or don't realize they have a problem. I have seen first hand just what an addiction does to your loved one, their family and all who love them and truly care about them.
Caseys Law has been passed and implemented in several states.It would be a good tool to HELP addicted people in New York as well as save lives. The police departments are going after drug dealers but that's just a step in controlling drugs on the streets. It still doesn't help the addict, the addict will and can just find another dealer or another way of getting high. The parents and families are feeling helpless and devastated watching their loved one killing themselves and knowing there is nothing they can do.
Addiction is now considered a disease.Why are we not treating this disease?
We need Caseys law in New York State NOW, not later. Too many people young , and old have lost there lives to this disease , and this disease has also destroyed many families, the addict and left other families to insurmountable horrors. Please help us to help the ones we love! Don't let another child, loved one or friend become just a statistic.
