Abstract Accessing client perspectives about co-operation in substance misuse treatment offers important information to enhance services and improve drop-out rates. This article reports upon qualitative data from a localised study of service needs of offenders in Scotland who were undertaking community-based court orders. The views of 27 men and two women on their current and recent treatment offers rich insights into factors influencing their co-operation in treatment. In contradiction to the voluntaristic ideology of treatment services, their voices identify the criminal justice system as offering strong support in the completion of treatment programmes.
