Mark Astor: An Addiction Attorney, Helping Families To Get Help For Addicted Family Members.


Mark Astor is an attorney who specializes in providing legal help to people who struggle with addiction. He often provides help through family members such as a parent or spouse. His specialty includes The Marchman Act, a Florida law that makes it possible to compel an addicted individual to go to treatment for up to six months. He also deals with the Baker Act and other legal tools that can make it possible to help an addicted family member for up to a full year, providing the necessary support to maximize the chance of long-term recovery.

I had the privilege of being a guest on Mark Astor’s video podcast. With his permission, I am publishing the audio from our conversation here. I think that it is important for patients and their families to be aware of their options in seeking treatment for addiction. We also spoke at length about MAT (medication-assisted treatment) of opioid addiction. We addressed the use of medications, such as methadone, buprenorphine (Suboxone), and naltrexone.
