STUDY 2011 HTM file
Prison health needs assessment for alcohol problems
Parkes T., MacAskill S., Brooks O. et al.
NHS Health Scotland, 2011.
What does the Scottish Prison Service need to do to adequately address alcohol problems among inmates? This needs assessment funded by the Scottish Government assesses the size of the problem, identifies the gaps, and recommends ways to plug them based on a review of relevant research.
McCoard S., Skellington Orr K., McKellar J. et al.
NHS Health Scotland, 2011.
Investigates what outside prison is being done in Scotland to meet the needs of problem drinking offenders by criminal justice and other services, and assesses whether local arrangements measure up to the size and nature of the task. Non-evidence based funding and the need to develop integrated care pathways emerged as key issues.
STUDY 2010 HTM file
Alcohol services in prisons: an unmet need
HM Inspectorate of Prisons.
HM Inspectorate of Prisons, 2010.
Prison inspections and surveys of prisoners and staff in England reveal a "depressing picture" of "very limited" services for problem drinking inmates, which leave them with poor prospects on release.
Brennan I., Moore S.C., Byrne E. et al.
Addiction: 2011, 106, p. 706–713.
Surprisingly, the big problem of disorder and violence associated with bars, clubs and pubs has not attracted a correspondingly large evidence base on how to prevent it. This review concludes that training bar staff to identify and respond to warning signs has some potential.
Baker A.L., Kavanagh D.J., Kay-Lambkin F. et al.
Addiction: 2009, 105, p. 87–99.
Australian study provides the first evidence that integrated treatment may be superior to alcohol- or depression-focused treatment for depressed heavy drinkers, but the lack of extra benefit in respect of depression and gender differences suggests a more complicated picture.
Koning I.M., van den Eijnden R.J.J.M., Engels R.C.M.E. et al.
Addiction: 2010, 106, p. 538–546.
In the Netherlands, allied with alcohol prevention lessons, addressing parental attitudes to and rule-setting about drinking by their adolescent children at routine parent meetings at the start of each school year led via these and other mechanisms to fewer pupils starting to drink regularly.
Nordic Studies on Alcohol and Drugs: 2010, 27, p. 383–408.
Lead researcher on influential analyses of the impact of possible alcohol pricing changes in the UK paints a picture of the state of play in drinking and related harms in England and how far these have or may be affected by national policy initiatives in a European and international policy context.
REVIEW 2010 HTM file
Pathways to employment in London: A guide for drug and alcohol services
London: DrugScope/LDAN, 2010.
Recommendations for British drug and alcohol services on how to help their clients gain employment based on field research and review of the literature in substance misuse and related sectors.
Caulkins J.P., DuPont R.L.
Addiction: 2010, 105, p. 575–577.
South Dakota appears to have achieved impressive results not by treating repeat drink-driving offenders but by requiring abstinence and enforcing this via frequent testing and the threat of immediate brief imprisonment; perhaps intensive intervention can be reserved for the few who do not comply.
REVIEW 2011 HTM file
A new paradigm for long-term recovery
DuPont R.L., Humphreys K.
Substance Abuse: 2011, 32, p. 1–6.
On the basis of three innovative US programmes for offenders or doctors with substance use problems, this analysis concludes that many seriously dependent individuals stop using if non-use is enforced through intensive monitoring and swift, certain but not necessarily severe consequences.
