Legal options after suffering from drug rehab center abuse

Most of our readers know that there is a serious drug problem that has been sweeping through the nation in recent years, particularly when it comes to opiates. California has not been immune to this issue. Some drugs, like opiates, are heavily addictive and can ruin a person's life. However, to their credit, some people come face-to-face with their addiction and seek help at a drug rehab center. Unfortunately, the stay at these centers isn't always beneficial for some California residents.

The fact is that certain types of abuse are not uncommon in drug rehab centers. After all, the individuals who enter into these facilities, typically on an inpatient basis, are in an extremely vulnerable state. Any person who works at the facility who is inclined to take advantage of such a situation may do so. In other situations, the caregivers at these facilities simply make mistakes, similar to what may occur in a hospital setting.

Abuse and negligence that occurs in a drug rehab center is unacceptable. Abuse may be in the form of physical abuse, but it can also be emotional or even sexual abuse. In neglect situations, a resident of the center may have unexplained marks on their skin or show changes in behavior. And, even to the untrained eye, a resident could appear to be dehydrated or malnourished. While the drug rehab abuse center may be quick to point to the person's addiction for their physical or mental state, that isn't always a valid excuse.

At our law firm, we do our best to help our clients who have suffered from abuse or neglect in a drug rehab center. It is only right to hold such centers accountable for these actions.
