Police Drug Diversion Initiative (PDDI)

The PDDI program is provided in partnership with Anglicare SA and offers assessment and early intervention strategies for adults who have been apprehended in possession of a small amount of illicit drugs deemed to be for personal use only (except cannabis). PDDI provides an assessment and education session with a professional drug and alcohol clinician, aimed at assessing current and past substance misuse, identifying areas of concern and providing education and information on the harms and risks of illicit drugs misuse. Clients may attend eight optional follow up appointments if they would like to receive further support. This service is currently provided in Bowden and Ridgehaven.
