Compulsory Placement Programme

The compulsory placement programme, run by the Correctional Services Department, caters for drug dependent persons who are convicted of relevant offences, not necessarily drug-related, and are considered by the courts to be suitable for treatment under the programme. The treatment programme aims at preparing inmates for their reintegration into society without relapsing into drug abuse.
