Details of all specific national or local scheme/intervention(s) available
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.
Support to address alcohol dependence can reduce the risk of re-offending and improve the individual’s personal and social needs.
Process for assessment and/or inclusion in scheme/intervention
Assessment for an alcohol treatment requirement would be via Criminal Justice Social Work Report and if appropriate specialist assessment by ABAT to determine the most suitable and available intervention.
