Drug Treatment and Testing Order (DTTO)

Last updated: 11th July 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:

CJSW have a DTTO team within DAIT based in Inverness that provides this service across Highland. (DTTO2s, a more modern form of DTTO targeting a younger poly-drug using cohort, is also available. This is a less intensive version of DTTO with a less rigorous testing regime. This is delivered in accordance with the DTTO National Guidance issued by SG (2004).
