Prison Substance Misuse Service

A brief summary of Drug Concern's work in the Prison

Drug Concern has a full time staff member based in the Prison. the Prison Substance Misuse Worker (PSMW) works with alcohol and illicit substance use and works closely with community services to ensure there is a robust through care service.

The PSMW uses the same therapeutic interventions as used in the community with the addition of specific Cognitive Behavioural Therapies; the emphasis is on change and relapse prevention. In addition to this we run the Inside Out Recovery Programme throughout the year. This eight - session programme works with you to consider and progress your recovery journey. This can be followed up with one-to-one work to increase your commitment to change.

Aftercare appointments can be arranged prior to your release and you can continue to engage in therapy or recovery work in the community. If you would like to be signposted to another service we can facilitate this.
