Treatment Division


The efforts of Lea County Probation's Treatment, Prevention, and Compliance Divisions work hand in hand to attain the needed changes in behavior to shape their clients into successful members of society. With the collaboration of efforts from all divisions, we increase the probability of success for each and every client.


Lea County Probation is equipped with a Treatment Division which offers clients to receive in-house services instead of faced with a process of being referred to outside agencies. Many of the clients that enter our program are court ordered to complete treatment, therefore, our treatment division is mainly responsible for the treatment and care of our clients needs. We are equipped with licensed and trained counselors who can evaluate and tailor a treatment plan and services that will aid each client in achieving their goals. The treatment options that are available through Lea County Probation include group and individual sessions which are conducted on a daily, weekly, and/or monthly basis, as deemed necessary.

Group Counseling and Therapy

  • Introducing structure and discipline into the often chaotic lives of clients
  • Providing norms that reinforce healthful ways of interacting in a safe and supportive therapeutic milieu that is crucial for recovery
