Details

Healthcare professionals can use these resources to understand:

  • the availability and effectiveness of alcohol and drug treatment services for young people (aged under 18) in England
  • trends in drug and alcohol use among those young people receiving treatment
  • the profile of young people accessing alcohol and drug treatment services

The report and accompanying tables present statistical analysis of treatment data from 1 April 2016 to 31 March 2017. Treatment centres from across England submitted the data to Public Health England (PHE).

Specialist substance misuse services support young people to:

  • address their alcohol and drug use
  • reduce the harm it causes them
  • prevent it from becoming a greater problem as they get older

They are part of a wider network of prevention services that support young people with a range of issues and help them to build resilience.

PHE collects data on patients receiving treatment, details of their treatment and the outcomes.
