I get many calls about parents who drink around the children despite a court order. Usually surveillance is requested. Driving intoxicated while children are in the car is a felony in Texas. Other parents may have alcohol and drug problems or a parent may misuse their prescription pain medication. The issue of misusing pain medications can be a difficult case requiring a good deal of investigation and knowledge of additions and medications.
I have dealt with some very difficult cases in the past especially with parents who were strongly in denial. On the flip side, I have dealt with equally difficult cases for persons who may have used drugs in the past and have now quit but remain in the doghouse, never to get out. Both situations require a good deal of investigation but can greatly benefit your case - showing proof one is NOT doing drugs is just as important as showing proof that one is abusing drugs. In addition to being a private investigator, I hold a certification as a Master's Addictions Counselor -now retired.
