Details

This experimental statistical report contains initial findings from a project that has linked drug and alcohol treatment data held by Public Health England (PHE) with data on offenders held by the Ministry of Justice.

This data share forms a part of various PHE developed products, including:

  • the annual commissioning support packs for commissioners of drug and alcohol services
  • reports for police and crime commissioners who are responsible for securing efficient and effective policing in their local areas
  • the social return on investment (SROI) tool, which helps local authorities demonstrate the social and economic benefits of local investment in alcohol and drug services

Visit NDTMS.net to access the SROI tool - you will need to login to download the tool.
