A judge can enforce mandatory rehab or a breathalizer on his car of 6 month to 1 year no licence and or jail and fines, if he admits to needing rehab he might get off scott free but remember if you help him and he kills someone in an accident it is a hard thing to live with, i think there are legal forums as no one is answering because it is not really a drug topic.

Hope i helped some

Contact a lawyer and ask them what they advise to do.  I am really happy he is in rehab and i would think the judge would feel the same.  I am sure there will be a fine but that is minor right now.  His safety and well being is what is important.  You are a good sister to him.....and as always, Take care of yourself too!!!!          sara

I have been in a lot of trouble in the past and the judge usually wants you to stay in rehab.  I'd talk to a lawyer and see what he says.  He shouldn't go to jail for a charge like that, usually probation.  If he's already in rehab tell the lawyer and he should be able to stay.  If you want to know anything else about my court troubles and what happened let me know and I'll gladly share with yuo anyhting I can
