The information requested is set out in the following table:

Community Accredited Programme Delivery by Programme 2011-12
Programme Commencements Completions
Low Intensity Alcohol Programme (LIAP) 441 364
Control of Violence for Angry and Impulsive Drinkers (COVAID) 316 239
Offender Substance Abuse Programme (OSAP) 325 185
Addressing Substance Related Offending (ASRO) 470 329
The Women's Programme 162 89

The figures in the table should not be used to estimate a completion rate for an individual programme: many offenders commencing during 2011-12 may actually complete in the following financial year. Likewise, a number of those completing during 2011-12 would have commenced in the previous financial year.

These figures have been drawn from administrative IT systems, which, as with any large-scale recording system, are subject to possible errors with data entry and processing.
