Drug Treatment Orders

Drug Treatment and Testing Orders (DTTOs) are a sentence available to the Sheriff and High Court as an alternative to custody. The order may be suitable where drug misuse is a significant factor behind offending behaviour.

It is an intensive order, often involving multi agency input, with the supervising social worker acting as case manager. The court regularly reviews the order to monitor progress. Regular drug testing is a key feature of the order.
