Drug Diversion Program

If you have been charged with an offence including, but not limited to, the possession of dangerous drugs, you may be eligible for the drug diversion program. This program is an education session conducted either in person or over the phone following their sentence in the Magistrates Court.

The drug diversion program’s purpose is to provide offenders with an education session to assist with their drug use in its early stages and reduce further drug-related offending.

A person who has been charged and given a Notice to Appear (NTA) in the Magistrates Court for a relevant drug offence, such as possessing dangerous drugs, may be eligible for the program. One of the first considerations is the nature and serious of the offence, while the second is whether the person charged has any relevant history.
