Through inclusion, part of our specialist care group, we have experience of working across all prison types and are the largest NHS provider of prison based drug and alcohol services in England.
There are two main strands to our criminal justice services, which include providing substance misuse treatment and mental health services within prison establishments across the country.
Our Drug and Alcohol Recovery Teams (DART) provide specialist criminal justice substance misuse workers based within prison establishments working in partnership with prison service staff.
We provide services that include initial screening, comprehensive assessment and recovery/release planning building upon the strengths of those we work with. We provide pharmacological interventions, psychosocial interventions, holisitic therapies, referral to BBV screening and support, structured treatment for offenders underpinned by a vibrant scheme that supports the use of peer mentors in prisons.
We believe that recovery communities can be created within prisons and our services aim to do this.
