So you're not aware of Mappa coordination with approved premises, metal health support in custody that continues into the community, housing officer employed in local prisons, the Oasys process, discharge strategies, family support, licence conditions?

I am not saying you're wrong, just that you don't seem aware of what is there, also drug/alcohol dependency causes an amount of mental health issues; detox is very important and currently more easily available inside, Judges know that.

The NHS was allocated some of the Justice Budget to 're-directed' those with MH issues, I don't see too much improvement in offenders re-visiting prison, quite the opposite.

I may be wrong, but I can only speak from both experience and quoting the stats.

I am glad there is a lot of continuing support. With things as they are I am surprised, but it is very necessary. As you say, custody is a good place to detox if nowhere else available.

Round here we have a place where they specialise in drug and alcohol addiction, and I think it has a pretty good record. Don't know much about it, but have heard of some of their methods, and we sometimes come across people from there helping at events.
