This chapter looks at the introduction and delivery of the Drug Rehabilitation Requirement (DRR), which applies to a broader range of drug-using offenders, ie not just opiate users. Its potential as a catalyst for change and rehabilitating offenders is also considered. Introduced as a more flexible option to its predecessor, the Drug Treatment and Testing Order (DTTO), any offender believed to be misusing drugs can receive a requirement, hence the investigation in this chapter into this widening. Finally, problems such as coerced treatment and whether practitioner discretion is affected by it are also analysed.
