The law allows the parents, relatives, or friends of an addicted person to lawfully intervene and request involuntary, court-ordered addiction treatment for their addicted loved one. http://transitionsky.org/information-about-caseys-law/

I started this petition because I felt as though it was necessary. A little more than 7 years ago I lost my brother to an addiction and I can't lose another loved one to this horrible disease. We need more awareness about this disease and we need more power to help our loved ones when they are too far gone in their disease to realize how sick they really are. Their addiction takes over their brain and their body. Sometimes they just can't fight it by themselves anymore. I am starting this petition because I want to be able to help another loved one before it's too late. I feel so helpless in the fact that there is nothing I can do because in the state of NJ the law states unless they are a harm to themselves or someone else there is nothing anyone can do .. this needs to change because this person so close to my heart is a danger to themselves and others but refuses treatment so continues to live everyday the same ... with the addiction.  Please sign and share! Thank you! ❤️
