Community Payback Order Treatment: Alcohol

Last updated: 27th June 2024


Where the order contains an alcohol treatment requirement an individual must submit to treatment by or under the direction of a specified person with a view to the reduction or elimination of the offender’s dependency on alcohol.

Further Information:

Specific interventions can be made available by ABAT for individuals who are assessed as having an alcohol dependency, and whose alcohol use is a contributory factor in their offending behaviour. For individuals who do not meet the threshold of assessment of alcohol dependence, intervention can be undertaken through a supervision requirement without the need for a treatment requirement.
