Clients in treatment

The data below shows the number of people in contact with specialist substance misuse services. People may access treatment for either problematic drug use, alcohol use or both.

Individuals presenting to adult alcohol and drug treatment services are categorised by the substances they cite as problematic at the start of treatment. They are categorised by the following hierarchal criteria:

  • any mention of opiate use would result in the person being categorised as OPIATE (irrespective of what other substances are cited)
  • people who present with non-opiate substances (without opiates or alcohol) will be classified as NON-OPIATE ONLY
  • people who present with a non-opiate substance and problematic alcohol use during their treatment journeys will be classified as NON-OPIATE AND ALCOHOL
  • people who present with alcohol and no other substances will be categorised as ALCOHOL ONLY

INFORMATION DISCLOSURE GUIDELINES

ViewIt enables users to take a much closer look at drug and alcohol treatment statistics by providing users with the ability to filter key statistics by local authority, sex, age band (18-29, 30-49, 50+) and problematic substance group ("opiates”, “non-opiates only”, “alcohol only” and “non-opiates and alcohol”). Data has been rounded to the nearest 5 at the lowest granular level (ie chosen local authority, sex, age band and problematic substance group) and these rounded sub-totals have been summed to create higher level totals. This method ensures that low numbers (i.e. 1-4) are suppressed and cannot be deduced from totals. This may result in occasional inflated or deflated figures being displayed, particularly where lower granular levels or small geographical areas are selected, as lower values are more common in these groups. However, England values have not been rounded and therefore, in some instances, totaling data values at the local authority level may exceed the England value.

Organisations and individuals can request more detailed data from NDTMS by contacting PHE's Office for Data Release at ODR@phe.gov.uk. All requests will be assessed individually and only in circumstances where there is no risk to client confidentiality will data be released. It will be important that appropriate ethical and information governance procedures are in place prior to receiving any bespoke data. Cost recovery may also be appropriate.
