Quasi-coerced treatment and other alternatives to imprisonment
In this area,
the criminal justice Platform explored and
compared previous research to national data and evidence.
According to the evidences collected, “coerced” treatment can be effective in reducing substance use, risk and offending behaviours, and
improving social integration. It can be as effective as voluntary treatment, if received in the same treatment services.
The platform organised a conference on this subject in October 2007 in Bucarest and then developed guidelines on good practice under the title:"Guidelines on the “quasi-compulsory” treatment of adult drug-dependent offenders".
