About this information

NICE clinical guidelines advise the NHS on caring for people with specific conditions or diseases and the treatments they should receive. The information applies to people using the NHS in England and Wales.

This information explains the advice about the care and treatment of people with antisocial personality disorder that is set out in NICE clinical guidelineĀ 77.

In March 2013, the information for families or carers of children with conduct problems was removed. Information for children and young people with conduct problems, and for their parents or carers, is included in Antisocial behaviour and conduct disorders in children and young people (NICE clinical guidelineĀ 158). All other information remains the same.

Does this information apply to me?

Yes, if you:

  • have antisocial personality disorder

  • are a family member or carer of someone with antisocial personality disorder.

The NICE guideline does not specifically look at treatments that are not normally available in the NHS or prison health services.
