Intersection of IDD and Substance Use

The aim of this study was to describe the social circumstances, patterns of substance abuse and related harmful behaviors in prisoners with ID who were scheduled for release from the Australian criminal justice system. The study compared prisoners with ID and who were scheduled to be released with a population of prisoners without ID in order to understand how the needs of this group compare with a mainstream prison population.
