The MERIT program operates out of Manly and Hornsby local courts. The program is designed to engage people with illicit drug problems and local court matters into drug and alcohol treatment. The program operates on a pre-plea basis, referrals to the service are predominantly from magistrates, solicitors, and local police. People wishing to participate can also refer themselves. Once assessed and accepted on to the MERIT program the client and MERIT case manager will develop a treatment plan that can include a range of drug and alcohol treatment options. The client generally participates in the program for three months before returning to court to have their court matters dealt with.
Solicitors, police, Magistrates, self-referrals, families, friends.
