Drug Treatment and Testing Orders can be offered as an alternative to a custodial sentence to adult offenders who have been identified as having a serious drug misuse problem, and who may respond to treatment.
Offenders can be referred from either of the three local sheriff courts, however, referrals can also be made from other Scottish Court services. Referrals can also be made by the author of a Criminal Justice Social Work Report. Drug Treatment and Testing Orders are run by the Forth Valley Substance Treatment Service.
