The PACT Coalition, together with the Women’s History and Culture Center (WHCC), 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 comprehensive opportunities to experience drug- and alcohol-free futures with multi-faceted support.Here’s a glimpse of family fun  AND program success.
