My boyfriend is in county jail in Arizona probation

My boyfriend is in county jail in Arizona for a probation violation (he returned a diluted drug test and was given 30 days). He is on probation due to a F6 drug paraphernalia charge that he pled guilty to. He also has a warrant in Denver for F6 theft (he is considered at large in Colorado) with no bond. We are concerned about extradition to Colorado, and are wondering about the likelihood of this, and if he has any other options. I spoke with the warrants dept, the sheriff's dept, and the county jail in Denver, and they have his warrant on file but there was no mention of extradition. I then spoke with the county jail in Yavapai as well as the sheriff's dept. The jail told me he has a detainer but didn't know for what, but the sheriff's office told me they haven't had any contact with anyone in Colorado and haven't told Denver they have him in custody. They also said he is still scheduled to be released from jail on June 23rd. I am wondering if the detainer at the jail could be from another charge or warrant in AZ that he doesn't know about or something old he forgot about, or if we should be concerned about extradition to Denver. When I looked at his public record files, it looked like there were new rulings that came about after he went to jail this time.

My wife is on probation of paraphernalia. State law requires

My wife is on probation for possession of paraphernalia. State law requires "appropriate" treatment or education. She has had 2 professional assessments completed, both determined that she is not a drug user (she is not, the circumstances of the charge are very suspect). The first was performed by the probation department and suggested drug education, the second was from a 3rd party treatment facility and also came back with a suggestion of the minimum drug education to satisfy state law. Her PO however marked intake for drug treatment. She has an intake appointment tomorrow and her PO has yet to respond to repeated request to clarify that she intended to assign treatment regardless of professional assessment. I was present when her PO verbally stated that if no treatment was the recommendation that she was ok with that. However the treatment facility says they are restricted by the paper work that said "treatment." If we don't get a response before the intake appointment, should we postpone intake until this can get clarified?
