Drug & Alcohol Awareness
Find out more about the Alcohol Diversion Scheme here.
The relationship between crime and the use of drugs and alcohol is well documented; according to the 2011/12 Crime Survey for England & Wales, there were 917,000 violent incidents where the victim believed the offender(s) to be under the influence of alcohol, accounting for 47% of violent offences committed that year.
Therefore it is essential that drug and alcohol awareness training forms an important part of an offender’s rehabilitation. The TTC Group has been delivering alcohol rehabilitation training for over twenty-five years, and is the UK’s leading provider of Drink Drive Rehabilitation Courses. However, TTC also offers a wide range of Alcohol and Drug Awareness training tailored to public and private sector organisations that looks at drug and alcohol use in its widest sense.
TTC’s Drug & Alcohol Awareness courses delivered to the Criminal Justice sector cover:
- The size and scale of the problem in the UK;
- Which occupations carry the highest risk;
- Why people drink and take drugs before driving;
- Alcohol limits;
- The 4 main types of alcohol and strengths;
- Drugs types – illegal substances, medicines and over the counter drugs;
- Common myths;
- Field impairment tests;
- Penalties and punishment.
Drug and Alcohol Awareness training can also be valuable for people working in the Criminal Justice sector including the Prison and Probation services.

TTC also delivers an Alcohol Diversion Scheme – an effective and constructive educational alternative – that the Police or Courts can refer an offender to, rather than issuing punitive measures. If you would like to learn more about TTC’s Alcohol Diversion scheme click here.
