Brief description High rates of return to custody and poor health are experienced by ex-inmates with problematic drug use. This project will evaluate the Connections program, an innovative, statewide program in NSW Adult Correctional Centres providing pre-release assessment and post-release support for patients with problematic drug use. It will determine if patients on the Connections program have lower rates of recidivism and better health outcomes; and if outcomes are different for Aboriginal patients.
