This chapter examines the link between alcohol consumption and crime. A significant number of offenders have alcohol misuse problems and this is an important factor in offending behaviour. While the justice system has traditionally struggled to address their needs, rehabilitative efforts have often been sacrificed in the pursuit of deterrence models. However, the development of non-traditional models that attempt to achieve a better balance between deterrence and rehabilitation signals a shift in the philosophy and approach to the management of these offenders through the justice system. Three programmes are described: driving while intoxicated (DWI)/drug courts, Hawaii’s Opportunity Probation with Enforcement (HOPE) programme, and the South Dakota 24/7 Sobriety Project.
