Client Success Means Community Success

Why Use ATC

Advantage Treatment Center offers pre and post-sentencing services at its locations in Sterling, Montrose, Lamar, and Alamosa, ranging from Monitored Sobriety to Electronic Monitoring. These services are in place to help clients through ordered stipulations by their supervising agency. ATC works in conjunction with the Courts, Probation Office, and Parole Office to insure an individual is abiding by all rules set forth by their supervising agency. Our programs are designed with the success of both the court and the individual in mind. All of our monitored sobriety programs, SCRAM, and community service monitoring are self-pay unless otherwise covered by the supervising agency, and payment arrangements can be made with Judicial Services staff.

Working Together

One of the primary reasons that ATC offers judicial services is to ensure that individuals who are under court supervision receive the support and resources they need to successfully complete their sentence and reintegrate into their communities. This includes treatment programs, education and vocational training, and support for finding employment and housing. In addition, ATC offers judicial services as a way to promote public safety and reduce recidivism. By closely monitoring individuals who are under court supervision, community corrections facilities can help ensure that they comply with the terms of their sentence and avoid further criminal behavior. This can help reduce the overall rate of crime in the community and promote a safer, more secure environment for everyone.

Monitored Sobriety 

Urine Analysis -This form of monitoring is Court ordered while defendants are on Bond waiting for a resolution to their case. Our monitored sobriety programs will require the Defendant to call a daily UA phone number for randomized testing.  All UA’s must be taken between 7AM and 9PM unless otherwise approved by Judicial Services Staff. 

Scram Monitoring

This form of monitoring requires the client to wear an ankle monitor. This monitor will, periodically throughout the day, test for alcohol use through the skin. This monitor can be ordered as pre-trial supervision by the Courts or as a stipulation of an individual’s sentence. This monitoring can also be set up as Electronic Home Monitoring (EHM) along with SCRAM Monitoring. This form of monitoring varies in pricing depending on the monitoring that is ordered.

Useful Public Service (Community Service)

Useful Public Service is given to individuals who have pled guilty or have been found guilty in a court of the law of a crime. Hours are assigned by the Judge presiding over the case and vary depending on the severity of the case. This stipulation is ordered by the court in an attempt to help rectify the harm the client may have caused the community and is viewed as an intricate part of the Criminal Justice system. 

Hair Follicle Testing

Hair follicle testing is an important part of the judicial system’s efforts to ensure the safety of the public and the integrity of the legal process. By testing for the presence of drugs, the judicial system can help to ensure that individuals who are involved in the system are not under the influence of drugs and are following the provisions put in place. Please contact the location closest to you to ensure that hair follicle testing is available at that site.

Electronic Home Monitoring (EHM)

This form of monitoring requires the Client to wear an ankle monitor. This monitor is strictly used for curfew purposes. This monitor can be ordered as pre-trial supervision by the Courts as a stipulation of an individual’s sentence. In some cases, EHM can be given in lieu of a jail sentence by the Courts at the Judge’s discretion. A client is allowed a determined amount of time daily, to work or complete personal business tasks. The allotted daily time is dependent on the Defendant’s personal situation. Also, a weekly “lockdown” day is established where the client is not allowed to leave his or her residence for a 24-hour period. 

GPS Monitoring

This form of monitoring requires the client to wear an ankle monitor, which tracks all movements made by the client. This monitor can also be ordered as pre-trial supervision by the courts or as a stipulation of an individual’s sentence. This monitor will track an individual’s whereabouts to the minute. The monitor is required to be charged daily.
