Bring Casey's Law to California - Reduce Addiction Rates!

This petition had 2,133 supporters

Please help me save my daughter.. Casey's Law saves lives! But it is only available in two states in our country; Kentucky and Ohio. Drug addiction is an epidemic and currently there are no California laws in place to help people who suffer from the disease of addiction to help save them from themselves. Initially it is typically a choice to experiment with drugs but once an individual falls so deeply into the cycle of drug abuse it becomes nearly impossible for most to be able to willingly seek help or stop on their own and often times mental illness is present which can make it even more difficult to seek help. Our loved ones need us to be their voice when they become too impaired to think clearly, make rational decisions and speak out on their own behalf. Our children are dying at an alarming rate. I do not want my dually diagnosed adult daughter (whom is only 21 years old) to become a statistic. Her life as well as many others lives depend on this! Casey's Law is currently only available in two states; Kentucky and Ohio. This bill allows family or friends to petition the courts for involuntary treatment which has already saved many lives. Please pass Casey's Law here in California!
