Details

Healthcare professionals can use these statistics to understand:

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

The report and accompanying tables contain statistical analysis of treatment data from 1 April 2017 to 31 March 2018.

Young people’s treatment centres from across England submitted the data to NDTMS.

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 bigger problem as they get older

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