Treatment clients referred from the court for drug treatment are most commonly referred because they are being given a chance to try their hand at rehabilitation rather than face jail time, other charges, fines, etc. While this is most common among first time offenders, it can happen at any point such as while the defendant is already incarcerated. There are different types of programs that criminal justice clients may be referred to, and it usually all depends on what is local to Empire and the type of issues the person requires treatment for.
There are rehab facilities that work directly with the criminal justice court system to administer to this explicit group of clientele, and are usually state funded or are available at no cost or very little cost to the client. There are also private drug and alcohol recovery programs that can be approved by the court if there is a specific type of recovery method that the client needs or desires that a state-funded facility can't fulfill. The client's attorney can propose such alternatives to the judge for acceptance. There are even drug recovery programs that provide services from the jails and prisons themselves, in which case clients are often in a better position for reduced sentences or other benefits when enrolling in drug rehabilitation services while serving their sentence for a drug related offense or a DUI/DWI.
