Everything that happens in a prison influences the behaviour and actions of the prisoners that it holds. Misuse of drugs can result in prisoners getting into debt, involved in violence and other crime, or being exploited by other prisoners. To reduce demand for drugs in prisons we need to ensure that the incentives guide people towards making positive choices that lead them away from drugs and towards opportunities for recovery. Many prisoners have complex needs and have suffered from trauma, with rates of substance misuse, mental health problems and poor physical health. We are looking for a highly motivated individual with strong people skills and an ability to empathise and mentor individuals through their prison experience, and prepare them for eventual release back to the community.
