Treatment clients referred from the court for drug treatment are usually referred because they are being given a chance to try their hand at rehabilitation instead of jail time, other charges, fines, etc. While this is more prevalent with first time offenders, it can occur at any point such as while the defendant is being held in jail. There are various types of programs that offenders can be referred to, and this depends on what is available in Nellis AFB and the type of substance they'll need treatment for.
There are recovery programs that work primarily with the courts to administer to this specific type of clientele, and are usually publicly-funded or are available at no cost or very little cost to the client. Additionally, there are also private addiction rehab facilities that might be accepted by the court if there is a specific type of rehab that the client requires or wants that a different program can't provide. The client's attorney can present such alternatives to the judge for permission. There are even addiction rehabilitation facilities that operate out of the correctional facilities themselves, whereas clients are typically in a better position for early release or other benefits when enrolling in substance abuse rehabilitation services while serving their sentence for a drug related offense or a DUI/DWI.
