Abstract:
This presentation will report on the findings of research that has examined the experiences of 31 Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal inmates undertaking prison based alcohol and other drug (AoD) treatment. This work is the first qualitative research of its kind in Australia 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.
