We support individuals referred through the courts or police via the Western Australian Diversion Program (WADP).

The primary aim of the Western Australian Diversion Program (WADP) is to divert offenders with alcohol and other drug (AOD) related problems into treatment. This provides an opportunity for them to treat and address use, addiction and related harm. The secondary aim is to break the cycle of offending.


The WADP consists of a number of established Diversion Programs with referrals pathways from WA Police, DoJ (Magistrates Courts), and Youth Justice Services (Corrections/Juvenile Justice Teams).

WADP programs are structured programs and range from brief early intervention to more intensive AOD treatment interventions. All WADP programs service people through agreed referral pathways for juveniles and adults who are:

  • apprehended by WA Police and diverted pre-charge,
  • appearing in court and provided with the option to engage in diversion before sentencing is finalised (i.e. pre-sentence).


In regional areas the WADP can be separated into the following:


Court Diversion

  • Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) Diversion Program

A state-wide voluntary court diversion program available in Magistrates Courts suitable for adult early and low to moderate level adult offenders with AOD related problems.


Police Diversion Programs

  • Cannabis Intervention Requirement (CIR)

A state-wide police diversion scheme for minor cannabis offences (eligible juveniles aged 14 -17 and adults).

  • Other Drug Intervention Requirement (ODIR)

A state-wide police diversion scheme for minor offences involving drugs other than cannabis (eligible adults aged 18 and over).


Young Justice Diversion

  • Young Person’s Opportunity Program (YPOP)

A state-wide voluntary program for early or low level young offenders engaged with a Juvenile Justice Team (JJT), and with AOD related problems or emerging AOD problems. YPOP may include court conferencing.


Western Australian Alcohol Interlock Scheme WA (AIS)

  • We provide counselling to individuals who are registered on this program and aim to achieve sustainable and improved health outcomes for the individual as well as the wider community. We work with the Department of Transport and Mental Health Commission to educate the community on the devices and promote its use to their clients. We can also liaise with the local service providers for installing and servicing the devices.


Work & Development Program (WDP)

  • We are a registered Sponsors for the Work & Development Order Program in WA. We work with vulnerable clients who are eligible to undertake a WDP to work off their Court fines debt.
