Drug Treatment and Testing Order (DTTO)

Last updated: 27th June 2024


A DTTO is a disposal which focuses on drug treatment as the primary means of reducing offending behaviour. Orders last between 6 months and 3 years and combine drug treatment and a testing regime with regular court reviews, in addition to supervision.

Further Information:

We continue to offer a Drug Treatment and Testing Order as a sentencing option available to the Court. We no longer have a dedicated DTTO Team, however these Orders are assessed for at report writing stage, and if imposed would be managed by one of the area teams or the Women’ Justice Teams. We have regular meetings with Fife Addiction Services to discuss any issues with regards to individuals who are open to both services via a DTTO. The Service provides regular updates to the Sheriff Courts on progress of the individuals that are supervised, these are generally set at monthly intervals.
