Clients referred from the court for drug treatment are usually referred because they are being granted a chance to accept treatment rather than face jail time, other charges, fines, etc. While this is more prevalent among first time offenders, it can be offered at any point including while the person is already incarcerated. There are various types of rehab programs that criminal justice clients might be referred to, and it usually all depends on what is available in Mercury and the type of substance they'll need treatment for.
There are rehab facilities that work exclusively with the criminal justice court system to treat this explicit type of clientele, and are typically state or federally funded or are available at no cost or very little cost to the client. Additionally, there are also private addiction treatment facilities that may be accepted by the court if there is a specific type of rehabilitation that the client requires or prefers that a state-funded program can't fulfill. The defendant's legal representation can propose such alternatives to the judge for acceptance. There are even drug treatment facilities that operate out of the jails themselves, whereas clients are often in a better position for early release or other leniencies when engaging in drug rehabilitation services while serving their time for a drug offense or a DUI/DWI.
