This document examines the judicial alternatives from Belgium to determine if it is truly beneficial for drug users. In Belgium, their set judicial alternative sanctions are increasingly being used for drug users. Because no study info the effectiveness of Belgian judicial alternatives for drug users yet exists, this became the objective for current research. The design of this study comprises a pre- and post-measurement of the criminal activity, drug use and situation in different phases of life of 565 drug-dependent offenders. The article drew two fundamental conclusions: (1) after an alternative sanction or measure is imposed, there is a reduction in the criminal activity of the offender; (2) this crime reduction goes hand in hand with the progress in several life phases.
