Alcohol and other drug use treatment in prison

 

Overview

This presentation will report on the findings of research that examined the experiences of 31 Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal inmates undertaking prison based alcohol and other drug (AOD) treatment.

The study is the first qualitative research of its kind whereby inmates undertaking treatment were interviewed. This work includes a systematic review of international peer reviewed literature published between 1995 and 2015 reporting on prison-based AOD treatment.

The research will be presented by Michael Doyle, a PhD candidate working in the Justice Health Research Program at the Kirby Institute. Mr Doyle is an early career Aboriginal researcher in the alcohol and drug field with a particular interest in prisoner heath.
