October 2009 - Scientific Workshop in Vienna

Treatment offered as an alternative to criminal justice sanctions has to be evidence-based and in line with ethical standards. UNODC convened a technical consultation of experts from 28 to 30 October 2009 in Vienna where 20 reserchers, policy makers and practitioner from 13 countries worldwide participated. On the basis of the discussions, UNODC produced this discussion paper which outlines a model of referral from the criminal justice system to the treatment system that is mor e effective than compulsory treatment.  This model of referral results in less restriction of liberty, is less stigmatising and offers better prospects for the future of the individual and the society.
