What is the O.P.E.N Program?
The Opportunity for Probation with Enforcement in Nevada (O.P.E.N.) provides intensive behavioral modification for males, age 18-26 who have been incarcerated. The goal of this program is to help reintegrate these individuals into their communities while connecting them with community based resources, while working to ensure successful completion of their court imposed requirements.
Who is Eligible to Participate in O.P.E.N.?
This program is only open to males between 18 and 26 years old. Participants must have a minimum of sixteen (16) months remaining on probation. Individuals in this program must have only limited medical or mental health concerns as this program is not designed to dispense medication or supervise medication compliance. Individuals with alcohol or substances abuse issues, those charged with sex crimes, individuals with a gang affiliation, and those with a history of violent offenses are considered on a case-by-case basis, and may not be eligible to participate.
What are the O.P.E.N. Program Requirements?
Treatment in this program includes regular drug testing, referrals to sober living, low income housing, or other temporary or transitional housing, electronic monitoring devices, alcohol use monitoring, and regular court appearances to ensure that the participant is on track to successfully complete probation.
This program is a minimum of twelve months but will vary based on the specific needs of each individual and the amount of time he or she is to serve on probation.
How Much Does O.P.E.N. Cost?
The OPEN program is provided a no direct cost to the participant. However, any additional ancillary services or sanctions imposed by the court for noncompliance may involve separate fees.
