Workshop Overview

The Clean Slate Sobriety Workshop is designed for those in treatment programs to help provide an education on the legal consequences of substance abuse as well offer an opportunity to learn how to clear current criminal charges or past convictions so that the individual can continue after treatment with a clean slate.

Part 1 of the workshop focuses on providing a primer on the drug and alcohol criminal laws in Arizona and specifically the severity of the penalties in this state.
