Drugs—intervention and referral services

(Question No 1777)

Mr Seselja asked the Minister for Health, upon notice, on 15 November 2007:

For each of the intervention and referral services of the (a) Police Early Intervention Program, (b) Court Alcohol and Drug Assessment Service and (c) Treatment Referral Program, (i) what are the assessment criteria used for assessing people to be considered for each of the intervention and referral services mentioned above, (ii) what reasons were recorded for those referrals received by the Health Assessment Service, but not recommended for treatment for each year from 2000 to 2006, (iii) what are the full range of options available for referral for treatment of people assessed as suitable by the Health Assessment Service and (iv) how many referrals have been made each year to each of the services identified in part (iii) from 2000 to 2006.

Ms Gallagher: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) Referral to the Police Early Diversion Program (PED) is made by the Australian Federal Police (AFP) for offenders charged with offences relating to possession of small amounts of cannabis (two plants or 25 grams or less) and other illicit drugs (25% of what is considered to be a 'trafficable' quantity under the Drugs of Dependence Act (DoDA) 1989).

The Court Alcohol and Drug Assessment Service (CADAS) is facilitated in the Magistrates and Children's Court. Referral for assessment is made by Court Order for offences relating to alcohol and other drug (AOD) use or charges relating to obtaining money for AOD use by the offender.

The Treatment Referral Program (TRP) is legislated within DoDA 1989. Part IX refers to Assessment and Treatment Orders.

(2) Reasons recorded for assessment of clients where no recommendation for treatment by the three Diversion Programs has been made include:

� No consent provided by offender to participate in treatment plan.
