Court Mandated Diversion

Treatment Services

The range of treatment options available for offenders will depend on what is most suitable for their needs but may include some or all of the following:

  • Individual counselling
  • Group counselling
  • Residential rehabilitation
  • Case management
  • Detoxification (via the State Alcohol and Drug Service)

Length Of A CMD Program

The length of the program can vary depending on the specific needs of the offender, however, generally:

  • At Bail: The program will be no longer than the term of bail, but will generally run over approximately 12 weeks
  • Through conditions attached to a community-based order: The length of treatment may be longer than at bail but will be no longer than the length of the order that the Court gives
  • Through a Drug Treatment Order: These orders are longer in length and may last between 12 to 18 months depending on the progress of the offender.
