Bean, Philip (2002) Drug treatment courts, British style: the drug treatment court movement in Britain. Substance Use & Misuse, 37, (12 & 13), 1595- 1614.

There has been an uneven pattern of development of drug treatment courts throughout Britain. The Republic of Ireland has a drug treatment court and Scotland will have one by the end of 2001, but there are no drug treatment courts in England and Wales, or Northern Ireland, although in the latter there is a growing interest. It is suggested the Drug Treatment and Testing Order (DTTO) in England and Wales has acted as an impediment as this is a very weak version of drug treatment court and was proposed by the Prime Minister when Shadow Home Secretary. Drug treatment courts in Eire and Scotland have adapted their program to fit local conditions, although neither have opted for a fully fledged drug user treatment court on the Miami model.
