Research good rehabs in your area residential ones and give her the numbers have her call them they will accept collect calls have her do intake interview and secure a spot in one then even a court appointed attorney can get her released into the facility cause the judge will see she has taken steps to her recovery especially if it's her first offense and/ or misdemeanor trust me it works and tell her to take classes they offer while in jail to show judge she is making an honest effort if she has children this is especially important and make sure you find her a facility that is family oriented and cooperative in the reunification process especially if they are CPS involved trust me this works from personal experience

If she is in custody, you have no say, or control over what happens next. She has to go through the system, and whatever happens will happen. If the court orders her into rehab, then she will go there, and if the court orders jail time, then that is where she will go.

What you should be using your time for, is finding an attorney who will look out for her rights and interest. That is the only way she may get to go to rehab over jail.
