Important Issues Concerning Mental Illness and DUI in Georgia

Question: Thanks so much for blogging about mental illness, depression, bipolar & Peachford Hospital and Ridgeview Institute. As a doctor I know how important these issues are and how they impact Georgia's citizens. Since I'm a psychiatrist I see people on a daily basis who need help with drinking problems and drug addiction. Most drug addiction is to legal drugs, not pot, cocaine or meth. Many of my patients have had a DUI or possession charge and I'm just glad that you are using your blog to discuss these important issues.

Answer: As Georgia DUI attorneys we think it is very important to highlight issues of interest to our clients. Certainly, issues like depression, mental illness and bipolar disorders are important. Treatment facilities like Peachford and Ridgeview are helpful in combatting these illnesses. And it's important to let those people who are afflicted know that they are not alone and that millions of Americans are in similar positions. Just about every day a new celebrity, athlete or political figure announces that he or she is dealing with bipolar, depression, alcoholism or a mental illness. Of course, people who are dealing with these issues have a much greater chance of being arrested for a DUI in Georgia.
