Abstract

This review was jointly commissioned by Geoff Cooke, Area Drug Strategy Co-ordinator for the Prison Service, the East and West Kent Health Authorities and the West Sussex Drug Action Team, as part of a wider programme of work evaluating the outcome effectiveness of drug treatment services within Kent, East Surrey and Sussex prisons. The specific aims of this scoping review were to identify treatments that are used for those with substance dependence, describe the current regimes available in prison, and to evaluate the effectiveness of the treatments, drawing on research evidence from the UK and the US through major bibliographic databases, such as BIDS, and other published and publicly available research materials
