Save the Date! Thursday May 31st, 6-8 PM.

SunCloud’s next “The Sky Is the Limit” guest speaker is the esteemed Judge Maritza Martinez of the Circuit Court of Cook County, her presentation is titled, “What Should Those of Us Struggling with Addiction and Mental Health Issues REALLY Expect When We Find Ourselves in the Cross Hairs of The Law and Other Authority Figures?

Fill out the form (on the right) or Contact David Newton at 1-866-729-1012.

Topic: How do Illinois courts (divorce, criminal and civil) REALLY treat those of us who struggle with addiction and mental illness when we find ourselves at their mercy?  Should we expect to be punished for being sick as many of us believe or should we expect to be surprised with compassion and support?

The goal: is to educate and inform, and empower our patients and their families with the truth as opposed the myths out there which are primarily based on fear, stigma and old ways. We believe most will be pleasantly surprised as we learn how much compassion and support there can be when in this situation, and how the law may actually be on our side in many cases!

Our guests:  A sitting Judge from cook county, a parole officer from Lake county and an attorney who specializes in representing people in discrimination cases.

The forum:  We will have a sitting panel hosted by a SCH staff member.  Questions can be submitted to the panel anonymously prior to the evening, or they can be asked live and in person.

The evening:  We will begin by serving a light dinner and appetizers at 5 pm.  This will be followed by the panel question and answer discussion from 6-8.

The location:  Our Northbrook Office.  40 Skokie Blvd, suite 200.  Northbrook.

The questions we often hear our patients asking include:
What happens if I leave my spouse while I am struggling with addiction?  Will I lose my kids?  Will she or he use my addiction against me when in court? 
What recourse do I have if I feel I was unjustly fired from my job because I am struggling with depression or addiction?
Will asking for help or seeking treatment while employed be used against me?   Can it be used against me in a divorce proceeding?
Should I be honest with the judge and my probation officer, or should I keep my struggles a secret?

ALL ARE WELCOME.  NO CHARGE TO ATTEND. SPACE IS LIMITED, PLEASE BOOK NOW.
