This thesis critically examines the role post-release alcohol misuse has on individuals transitioning from prison to the wider community in Victoria, Australia. Drawing on interviews conducted with post-release support workers and forensic counsellors, this thesis demonstrates how post-release alcohol misuse complicates and impedes the transitional process. The findings reveal that post-release alcohol misuse is a “massive” problem, which presents significant barriers for releasees hoping to pursue a desistance and recovery lifestyle.
