Under the New Labour government, breaking the apparent link between drug use and crime became one of the main aims of drug policy. A wide range of initiatives to tackle drug-related crime were introduced under the auspices of the Drug Interventions Programme and criminal justice agencies became key players in channelling drug users into treatment. This book focuses on the range of drug interventions now available at all stages in the criminal justice process that have been put in place to reduce drug-related offending. It comprises of a series of eight chapters from eleven authors who were all actively engaged in researching these new initiatives from criminological and criminal justice perspectives. Each chapter brings together theory, policy and research (including the author's own research) to provide a thorough review and analysis of the operation, impact and effectiveness of one or more drug interventions. A further chapter is dedicated to researching drug interventions in criminal justice. This book also contains a further resources section. "Drug Interventions in Criminal Justice" is a key text for students and academics in the fields of criminology and criminal justice, social policy and social work, health and social care, and addiction studies. It is essential reading for professionals and policy-makers working in for drug sector and criminal justice organisations. Contributors: Anthea Hucklesby, Stuart Lister, George Mair, Gill McIvor, Matthew Millings, Ian Paylor, Layla Skinns, Alex Stevens, Paul Turnbull, Alison Wilson, and Emma Wincup.
