Breaking the Cycle

Mesquite, NV – The PACT Coalition, together with the Women’s History and Culture Center, is part of a Southern Nevada initiative to Break the Cycle of drug and alcohol addiction. In Mesquite, NV, these organizations are part of the comprehensive Mesquite Drug Court Breaking the Cycle Program, led by Judge Ryan Toone. Drug Court participants may voluntarily opt into the program for a time period of 18+ months. Together with the Mesquite City Attorney’s Office, SafeNest, and Mesquite Behavioral Health, the Breaking the Cycle Team provides participants with a comprehensive and opportunity to experience drug- and alcohol-free futures with multi-faceted support.

Family relationships AND family fun are an integral component of that future. This summer, Mesquite, NV Breaking the Cycle participants are being treated to four events. Events (past and scheduled) include a park picnic, swimming pool barbecue party, movie theater adventure, and a bowling party. Here’s a glimpse of family fun AND program success.

Jamie Ross of the PACT Coalition stated that, “it’s an honor to be a part of such a fun and inclusive experience that strengthens our community and our families. It’s fortunate that we have funding and partnerships that enable those involved in Judge Toon’s program to reconnect with family support systems that are so important for long term success in this incredible program.”
