Alcohol Treatment Requirement (ATR) is another treatment order available to the courts, to assist in sentencing an offender. This chapter looks at the author's primary research of how the ATR model was used in an area, and how organised and efficient the model is within the context of coerced interventions and community punishment. The research also explores key themes such as partnership-working, referral, assessment and treatment delivery to highlight the conflicts between reoffending and risk of harm when organisations with different values are involved. The issue of whether alcohol problems are caused by the rise in population-level alcohol consumption is also considered.
