The Drug Treatment and Testing Order: Early Lessons: Report

9780102927610: The Drug Treatment and Testing Order: Early Lessons: Report

Feeding a serious drug habit is very costly and as a result drug users commit a high proportion of acquisitive crime. In an attempt to reduce this crime, the Government introduced the Drug Treatment and Testing Order in 1998. This is a community sentence that requires offenders to submit to regular drug testing and attend intensive treatment and rehabilitation sessions. This report looks at the working of the scheme. It concludes that there has been rapid progress in getting offenders onto the programme and there have been some successes; however there has been a low completion rate. It recommends a new National Offender Management Service to strengthen the management of the Order and that attention should shift from achieving commencements to improving the effectiveness of the programmes.
