Process for Assessment and/or inclusion in scheme/intervention

A drug treatment requirement might be imposed when there are drug issues identified, but where an individual has not established a chronic history of drug misuse. Such a requirement will only be imposed in addition to an offender supervision requirement. Individuals with drug problems, who would not be eligible for a Drug Testing or Treatment Order, because their offending history is not sufficiently high tariff, should be considered by the Criminal Justice Social Work Report author for such a disposal. This may include, for example, females who generally have a lower tariff offending history or some first time offenders.
