This document describes how clinical substance misuse management in prison may be developed to accord with current DH (1999) and NHS (NTA 2003) guidance. The clinical development it describes is funded by Department of Health. The guidance is accompanied by a letter of announcement and an implementation project plan.

This guidance has been updated and a letter sent to notify users of the change to the guidance on 31 March 2010. The PDF has been updated and the revised guidance added as a stand alone document.
