Aspen of Minnesota
Aspen of New Mexico
• Courts
• Probation

Once the offender has reached the sentencing hearing of their case, the courts in conjunction with other consequences can also opt to sentence the offender to A.S.P.E.N. "Second Chance-Life Values" program. At the courts discretion the offender has thirty, sixty or ninety days to attend the class. Upon completion of the class the offender is awarded a Certification of Completion and the offenders' participation is communicated to the courts by the A.S.P.E.N. staff.
What We Provide...
  • Provide the offender with information concerning the negative effects of criminal activity and a criminal lifestyle.
  • Provide education regarding involvement in General Crime, Alcohol, Gangs and Drug Abuse
  • Provide the offender with positive information on harm reduction and self-help.
  • Educate the offender on how to prevent further harm to themselves and understand there are positive alternatives to criminal behavior, as well as organizations and agencies to help them.
