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 young people receiving treatment
- the profile of young people accessing alcohol and drug treatment services
The report and accompanying tables contain treatment data from 1 April 2018 to 31 March 2019.
Young people’s treatment centres from across England submitted the data to NDTMS. 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.
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.
