If you are using substances and have become involved in the criminal justice system, we can provide support to help you.
We can give you information, advice and support to help you make changes, including working with you on a voluntary basis and helping you engage in treatment.
You may be referred to our service if you come into contact with the criminal justice system because:
- You have been arrested and drug tested while in custody, and have tested positive for opiates or cocaine use. The police will give you a mandatory appointment to attend our service for an initial assessment.
- You appear in court and are being considered for, or are given, a court order that requires you to have drug or alcohol treatment. These are known as a Drug Rehabilitation Requirement (DRR) and an Alcohol Treatment Requirement (ATR).
- You are released from prison to Sheffield and require support or treatment on release.
This service is commissioned by the Drug and Alcohol Co-ordination Team at Sheffield City Council.
