It’s been more than 100 years since drugs have been outlawed in the United States. Interestingly, in the last years, researchers and scientists have come up with new theories about addiction. The classic theory is that after using drugs, a person will be hooked physically and that would make him/her unable to stop. A new theory researched by journalist Johann Hari and shaped by psychology professor Bruce Alexander, explains that addiction might actually be an adaptation to a type of environment. The idea is that we naturally need to connect with each other. That allows us to survive and to thrive. Yet, when human connection is unavailable or is tainted in some way, people will connect to the next best thing that makes them feel good or relieved.

Johann Hari stresses that “a core part of addiction (...) is about not being able to bear to be present in your life.

At King Triton Bail Bonds, we have witnessed such cases. One of our clients was so involved in a drug affected lifestyle, that we had to bail him out 6 times in one year and a half. Besides, the worst part for that client was that even when all the charges against him were dismissed, we had all the bond paperwork done, and everything seemed fine, he still went to jail for possession. In no more than two hours. That client was caught in a lifestyle fueled by drugs. 

We understand how difficult and critical addiction cases are. That is why we offer the "BAIL TO REHABILITATION" program. This program is intended to help you or your loved one learn a new, healthy lifestyle. It entails remaining, for a predetermined period of time, in a facility that offers treatment and support. Hopefully, this program will make you feel connected and will show a new perspective on life.

Until we, as a society, understand more about each other and integrate that knowledge in our everyday lives, safety remains one of our main concerns. Certain places have a high crime rate and it is advisable to avoid them.
