Illicit drug diversion initiative (IDDI)



Illicit drug diversionary initiative (IDDI) is an alcohol and other drug counselling and referral service to first time drug offenders. Police divert drug offenders caught using or possessing small quantities of illicit drugs to Circular Head Aboriginal Corporation (CHAC), Tasmania, for appropriate education, counselling or referral. This program is designed as an alternative to facing court for convictions. Therefore, this program educates offenders to consider the legal and health consequences of using illicit drugs. Both adults and juveniles can be diverted through police referrals.
