The Drug Recovery Prison pilot at HMP Holme House ran from April 2017 until March 2020. It was a jointly supported programme commissioned by both the Ministry of Justice and HM Prison and Probation Service and the Department of Health and Social Care and NHS England and Improvement. NHS England and Improvement as well as HM Prison and Probation Service continue to support the programme with many of the activities introduced during the pilot phase moving into business as usual delivery. A Process Evaluation of the Drug Recovery Prison Programme has been completed and will be published shortly. An Impact and Economic Evaluation is due to be completed in 2023.

Lessons learned from the Drug Recovery Prison pilot continue to be used to inform wide reaching initiatives such as the HMPPS Security Investment Programme and the Accelerator Prisons Project.
