The drug treatment of offenders is a contentious issue steeped in political debate and clouded in media commentary about the rights of those who are estimated to commit up to half of the United Kingdom’s acquisitive crimes (HMG, 2008). The aim of this Chapter is to provide the reader with an overview of developments in the treatment for drug misuse offending. Initially, however, a general review of drugs and crime will be conducted. This will be followed by a background review of the development of treatment services in the United Kingdom and the second half of the chapter considers recent progress in treatments for drug misuse offenders.
