A Drug Counselor Sees the Perils of Jailing Her Son for Addiction
Robin Wallace has more than 30 years of experience working as an addiction counselor in Massachusetts, so when her 33-year-old son, Sean, needed help with an opioid addiction in 2017, she thought she knew where to go for help. Wallace turned to a Massachusetts state law called Section 35, which allows a family member, doctor or law enforcement official to petition a court to involuntarily commit an individual for up to 90 days for substance abuse treatment.
