Queensland Drug and Alcohol Court referral re-opening

QDAC commenced listing first referrals for the week of 13 July 2020.

QDAC has advised that there is a strict referral procedure in place to ensure a controlled referral strategy is maintained. Upon a referring Magistrate being satisfied that a defendant is eligible for referral to QDAC, listing arrangements will be made with BMC Listings. No new referrals can be accepted by QDAC outside of this process.

The diary has provision for four referrals per week (mention in QDAC at 2pm on Wednesdays)—2 defendants in custody and 2 defendants on bail.
