Bradfield, R, Mandatory treatment for alcohol and drug affected offenders: Sentencing Advisory Council Research Paper No 2, Tasmanian Attorney-General's Department, Tasmania, September (2017) [Contract Report]
Official URL: http://www.sentencingcouncil.tas.gov.au/__data/ass...
The Tasmanian Government has asked the Sentencing Advisory Council for advice on the implementation of mandatory treatment for offenders with substance abuse problems.
This Research Paper considers mandatory treatment for offenders with substance abuse problems in four situations: in prison, as part of a drug treatment order, as part of a parole order and as part of a community-based sanction. It considers the justifications for creating a mandatory treatment regime and the legal mechanisms that may be used to achieve that outcome.
