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
