      Alcohol treatment requirements (ATRs) were introduced under section 212 of the criminal justice act (2003) and offers treatment for those whose offending behaviour has been found to be linked to either hazardous or harmful drinking patterns. This current report aims to provide information around the characteristics of individuals who have participated in the ATR. The report is based on quantitative data collected from probation records and treatment files and is part of a wider study of the ATR in Wakefield. The impact of this treatment approach, based on 'coercion' is explored and this report presents outcome data in relation to offenders' participation, retention and rehabilitation.
