The Evaluation of the Restriction of Bail Pilot
"Imposing treatment earlier in the judicial process may be one way to improve outcomes. In 2004 and 2005 three areas in England piloted a court order which made attending an assessment and if indicated participating in treatment a condition of non-custodial bail. For defendants suspected of an offence motivated by drug use (identified by a positive test after arrest), it offered rapid access to help if they needed it and the chance (they could turn it down) to avoid a spell in a remand prison. The conclusion was that a relatively small but possibly worthwhile number of defendants had entered treatment due to the bail order who would not otherwise have done so, but that impacts on retention, offending and imprisonment could not be demonstrated."
