Summary
"The aim of this paper is to compare the incidence, timing and risk factors for substance-related death between Indigenous and non-indigenous ex-prisoners in Queensland, Australia. Ex-prisoners are at increased risk of death, particularly in the first few weeks post-release. Available evidence suggests that this increase in mortality is due primarily to unnatural causes, particularly substance-related abuses. A recent meta-analysis of this literature found that, internationally, the risk of drug-related death is between three and eight times higher in the first 2 weeks post-release than in the subsequent 10 weeks. The presumed mechanism underpinning this acute elevation in risk of drug-related death is reduced opioid tolerance during incarceration, coupled with a rapid return to use of opioids after release from custody." -- [From paper]
