The Florida Marchman Act is a civil statute that empowers family members and/or friends in obtaining court ordered substance abuse assessment, detox, stabilization and treatment for a loved one that refuses to seek substance abuse services voluntarily.
We understand you are aware of the difficulty faced by families who seek treatment services for a loved one refusing care.

The proper implantation of the Marchman Act will help you, and concerned loved ones, obtain the necessary treatment for substance abusers that have lost the power of self-control.
As attorneys we have a unique understanding of the Florida Marchman Act law. Before creating ARLS our attorneys were continuously court appointed to represent and defend Patient/Respondents (substance abusers) in Marchman Act proceedings. Our success meant a dismissal of a families petition to obtain help. Over the years we recognized it was the family as Petitioners who needed legal representation…thus ARLS was created. We have successfully handled literally hundreds of cases throughout Florida on behalf of families referred to us from facilities such as yours. We have served as Delegates of the Statewide Drug Policy Committee, Marchman Act Workgroup, charged with re-drafting the Florida Marchman Act. The Marchman Act is a complex statute. Utilizing our legal training and experience, we can ensure our clients and you the provider the greatest possibility of success.
