Leonard Schisler FAIR TREATMENT
Organized by: Zachary Garten
Leonard Schisler "PeeWee" is currently incarcerated awaiting trial in Carroll County MD. He is a recovering addict that needs proper representation in court. He was injured in a what should have been fatal car accident. He was proscribed a lethal concoction of opiates and benzodiazepines. When he tried to wean down on those medications he was referred to a methadone clinic where the strength of medication as well as doses grew all the while still being prescribed benzodiazepines. Research has shown that those medications when taken together can cause an individual to be in a "prescribed blackout." Carroll County Circuit Court systems have always tryed to get addicts treatment as opposed to prison time but due to his extensive record in the past he isn't being treated the same and is facing LIFE WITHOUT CHANCE OF PAROLE. If we could raise enough money to get him proper representation he could get the treatment he deserves. Addiction is a proven disease, its like being diabetic and needing insulin, addicts need treatment. Im asking for you to reach in your heart and help someone that could have easily been you in their shoes, help him get treatment and proper representation, help save his life, PLEASE.
