Québec court-supervised drug treatment program

The Québec court-supervised drug treatment program will offer a way for the court system to reduce the level of crime associated with drug addiction using penal measures that support treatment for addicts as a way to protect society.

As permitted by the Criminal Code, the program will give the courts the ability to suspend a sentence until the addicted offender undergoes a court-supervised treatment for his or her addiction. The program will also enable closer cooperation between the courts and addiction resources to establish courses of treatment, including therapy, rehabilitation and social reintegration.
