Alcohol Interventions in Prison – Brief Interventions, Screening, Recovery
Venue: Manchester Evening Seminar
Thu 5 February 2015
Featuring: Kieran Lynch, Criminal Justice Programme Manager, Public Health England
Brief alcohol interventions have a large and robust evidence base for reducing alcohol use in risky drinkers, particularly in primary care settings. However, there is little evidence of effect upon drinking levels in criminal justice settings.
This free seminar will focus on Gateways and Public Health England research and review two projects that are looking to plug the gap and work within the new transforming rehabilitation agenda and test whether Brief Interventions can be effectively delivered in prison.
