Substance Misuse Service

The Substance Misuse Service at HMP Rye Hill works to the previous CARAT model offering support, advice, information and low-threshold counselling concerning drug and alcohol related issues. It is a service for people who have previously or are currently misusing drugs and or alcohol and would like support with their issues. The interventions listed below are provided in conjunction with the dedicated substance misuse Recovery Unit.

Our team consists of three substance misuse workers, one senior substance misuse worker, one administrator and a service manager.

The service is further enhanced by horticultural instructors who facilitate the Master Gardener project in conjunction with Ryton Garden Organic specifically for Substance Misuse Services.

Interventions can be completed with service users on an individual basis. It is a needs led service and we work with the service user to identify skills and strategies to address substance misuse patterns and behaviour including:

Coping skills
- Dealing with high risk situations
- Motivational issues
- Relapse prevention skills
- Alternative lifestyles
- Stress and anxiety
- Drug awareness
- Harm reduction issues

The team run a number of specific courses including:

- Crack awareness
- Drug awareness
- A 10 week Recovery Through Self-Change (RTS) programme
- Crack and Cocaine Awareness
- Drug awareness
- Relapse Prevention
- Opiate Awareness
- Stimulant Awareness

In addition to the above we also offer:

- Auricular Acupuncture sessions
- Alcoholics Anonymous meetings
- SMART Recovery Peer Support groups
- Assessment and onward referral into prescribing services

We accept referrals from all sources.
