Seeking out rehabilitation within the Drug Rehabilitation Requirement

Bernie Heath

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter explores the introduction and delivery of DRR, giving consideration to it as a catalyst for change and its potential for contributing to the rehabilitation of drug misusing offenders. It will draw on enquiries made to offender managers in nine Probation Service areas, which specifically aimed to explore the way in which the DRR is delivered, the expectations of those on such orders, the impact of enforcement and local arrangements for reviews.Throughout, reference will be made to the recent Review of the Drug Rehabilitation Requirement (Sondhi et al, 2011) commissioned by the National Offender Management Service (NOMS), and the perceptions of offenders subject to a DRR will be highlighted. The impact of the emerging Recovery Agenda on the delivery of the DRR will also be considered.
