Public Health England collects data on patients receiving substance misuse treatment, details of their treatment and the outcomes.

The report and tables present statistical analysis of treatment data from 1 April 2018 to 31 March 2019. Treatment centres from across England submitted the data.

Healthcare professionals can use these resources to understand:

  • the availability and effectiveness of alcohol and drug treatment for adults in England
  • trends in drug and alcohol use among adults receiving treatment
  • the profile of adult patients accessing alcohol and drug treatment services

For previous annual statistical reports and details of the methodology visit the NDTMS website.

These statistics were produced in partnership with the National Drug Evidence Centre.
