Aims: Until now there has been no formal guidance to help clinicians to manage substance dependence among young people.

This guidance document describes good practice on the best ways to manage a clinically complex condition.

Intended audience: PCTs Prison Health Leads, Senior Medical Practitioner in Young Offender Institutions and Secure Training Centres, Doctors providing services to Local Authority Secure Children’s Homes.
