The latest 2015-16 young people’s statistics from the National Drug Treatment Monitoring System (NDTMS) show that there were 17,077 young people (under the age of 18) in substance misuse services, a reduction of 7% compared to 2014-15. Females in treatment were younger, with a lower median age than males (15, compared to 16). The most common substance that young people presented to treatment with continued to be cannabis (87% of all young people in treatment), followed by alcohol (48%). Waiting times to gain access to specialist services were short, with almost all (98%) accessing treatment within three weeks, and 79% waiting for zero days for their first intervention. Of the 11,224 young people leaving treatment in 2015-16, 80% left in a planned way, no longer requiring specialist interventions.
