Prisoners with drug/alcohol misuse problems are identified through reception procedures and mandatory drug testing results. The Substance Misuse Team is operated by Compass who try and identify and offer treatment programmes to those prisoners who need them. There are drug education and treatment courses available.
In addition there is a team of CARATs Drugs Workers at the prison. This team provides Counselling, Assessment, Referral, Advice and Throughcare services to any prisoners who may self refer at any point during their period in custody. CARATs also accept referrals from any other departments or agencies, both inside and out, and forms part of the sentence planning process. However, to ensure the work is meaningful, the service adheres to a strict confidentiality policy and client permission is always sought before any contact is made.
