Abstract
First paragraph: Drug Treatment and Testing Orders (DTTOs) - aimed at providing courts with a further community-based option to deal more effectively with some serious drug misusers who commit crimes to fund their habit - were introduced in the UK through provisions in the Crime and Disorder Act 1998. Under the relevant legislation courts can require offenders to undergo treatment for their drug misuse, subject to their consenting to such an order being made.
