Treatment clients referred from the court for substance abuse treatment are usually referred because they are being given a chance to try their hand at rehab instead of jail time, other charges, fines, etc. While this is most common with first time offenders, it can happen at any time including while someone is being held in jail. There are various types of programs that offenders can be referred to, and it usually depends on which programs are available in Mesquite and the type of substance the person requires treatment for.
There are rehab facilities that work primarily with the courts to administer to 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. There are also private substance abuse recovery centers that might be approved by the court if there is a specific type of recovery method that the client requires or wants that a state-funded facility can't provide. The client's attorney can push for such alternatives to the judge for acceptance. There are even addiction recovery programs that operate out of the jails themselves, in which case clients are sometimes in a better position for early release or other benefits when enrolling in substance abuse rehabilitation services while serving their time for a drug offense or a DUI/DWI.
