Joudo J (2008)

Responding to substance abuse and offending in Indigenous communities: review of diversion programs.

Canberra: Australian Institute of Criminology

This report examines diversion programs currently available to both Indigenous and non-Indigenous offenders in Australia. This report is the first stage of a larger study evaluating the way that Australian Governments have sought to address Indigenous substance use and related offending. The report provides an overview of the type and extent of current diversion programs available and highlights the related issues and barriers to effective participation and completion for Indigenous offenders. The research for this report included literature research and consultations in all States and Territories. Findings suggest that is is necessary to consider the drug use problems specific to Indigenous offenders, and that programs should be expanded to include substances such as alcohol and inhalants.
