Alcohol and Other Drug Treatment in Prison

 

Overview

This seminar is an opportunity to hear from Michael Doyle, a Wingara Mura Research Fellow at the University of Sydney, who will present on his research around prison-based alcohol and other drug (AOD) treatment programs.

A history of hazardous AOD use is common among people entering the prison system. While alcohol and drug treatment programs are available in all Australian states and territories, there is limited published peer-reviewed literature on the subject.

This Aboriginal-led PhD project investigated the experiences of 31 men (14 Aboriginal and 17 non-Aboriginal) of prison-based AOD treatment programs. The results and findings for this research will be reported in this presentation, which will also include findings from a systematic review of international peer-reviewed literature in prison-based AOD treatment research.

This seminar is free to attend, but registration is essential. Please refer to the links below for further information.
