What is it?
The Glasgow Drug Court was set up, before I became involved, as a pilot along with a similar court in Fife in 2001. It was seen as a success and given ongoing support. Its aim has always been to reduce drug misuse and the offending caused by that misuse. This is done by giving sentences that are based on practical treatments.
The court does not follow the traditional set-up. The Drug Treatment and Testing Order (DTTO) imposes on offenders an obligation to be treated and tested for drug abuse and to commit to change.
