About this study
P-ASRO (Prisoners - Addressing Substance Related Offending) is
the name of an intervention delivered to offenders in custody whose
substance use means they are more likely to commit crime.
This feasibility study was commissioned by the Ministry of Justice to see if it is possible to evaluate the success of P-ASRO.
|The research was primarily qualitative and comprised four distinct stages: interviews with strategic stakeholders; case studies in prisons; telephone interviews with Counselling, Assessment, Referrals, Advice and Throughcare (CARAT) service workers; and, a workshop with treatment managers. Case studies involved interviews and group discussions with both operational staff and offenders.|
