NJ mom: ‘I’m fighting for Sabrina’s Law to save our loved ones’
We were joined this morning by Lisa, a NJ mother who lost her daughter in 2013 to a drug overdose. Now, Lisa is fighting to help save other people's children from a similar fate with Sabrina's Law.
The way the current system in NJ is set up, is not conducive to helping addicts recover. Many addicts who are considered "adults" at 18 or 19 years old, are not equipped to seek help but if they decide that they do not want help, there is nothing a parent can do to force them into rehabilitation.
"Once they start using mind-altering drugs and they're over the age of 18, there's nothing you can do. They're not able to make a decision on their own. So therefore someone needs to step up and take action for them, that's why I'm fighting for Sabrina's Law, to help save our loved ones," Lisa stated.
