Treatment clients referred from the court for drug treatment are most commonly referred because they are being granted a chance to accept treatment instead of jail time, other charges, fines, etc. Although this is more prevalent with first time offenders, it can be offered at any time including while someone is being held in jail. There are different types of rehab programs that criminal justice clients can be referred to, and this depends on what is available in Elko and the type of substance they'll need treatment for.
There are programs that work exclusively with the criminal justice court system to treat this explicit group of clientele, and are usually state or federally funded or are available at no cost or very little cost to the client. There are also private addiction rehabilitation programs that may be approved by the court if there is a specific type of treatment that the person requires or wants that a state-funded facility can't fulfill. The client's legal representation can present such alternatives to the judge for permission. There are even addiction rehabilitation centers that provide services from the correctional facilities themselves, in which case clients are typically in a better position for early release or other benefits when participating in substance abuse treatment services while serving their time for a drug offense or a DUI/DWI.
