Involuntary Commitment to Treatment Can Help your Loved Ones Recover from Cannabis-Induced Psychosis

March 4 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm CST

For at least the last 5 years, we have seen a significant increase in the number of young people experiencing psychotic-like features after using cannabis in its various forms. Psychosis makes it difficult for parents to rationalize with their young adult children about their need for treatment. That’s where the court system can help.

Joe Considine has practiced law in South Florida since 1983. His practice focuses on addiction-related law, including the Marchman Act and family law. He works extensively with families whose loved ones have substance abuse and mental health problems and has handled hundreds of Marchman Act cases in various circuits in Florida. Joe is committed to educating mental health professionals, the legal community, and the public about the efficacy of the Marchman Act. He has presented to conferences of mental health professionals, treatment centers, and civic organizations. He has also written many articles about the Marchman Act, which are easily accessible at JoeConsidineLaw.com.

In addition to leading a well-regarded law practice, Joe has served on the Board of Directors of The Fern House in West Palm Beach, a residential rehabilitation facility for indigent men with substance use disorders, for more than 25 years. He also enjoys assisting and participating with the Max Planck Institute for Neuroscience as a member of its Brain Trust. A native of Palm Beach County, Joe currently lives in West Palm Beach, has three adult children, and loves painting, mountain biking, and tending to his butterfly garden.
