Investment in drug and alcohol treatment

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear East Sussex County Council,

DrugScope is the national membership organisation for the drug and
alcohol treatment sector. We conduct an annual ‘State of the
Sector’ project to learn more about how the specialist treatment is
faring at a local level. You can find information about DrugScope
and last year’s State of the Sector at our website:
http://tinyurl.com/q3hzqeu

This year, for the first time, we are planning to publish a
supplementary report detailing investment in drug and alcohol
treatment across England; we are submitting requests under the
Freedom of Information Act to every relevant local authority to
facilitate this.

I would appreciate it if you could provide all information you hold
on the following matters:

1. Actual spend on drug and alcohol treatment in 2013-14, broken
down by: spend on (i) community treatment, (ii) residential
treatment, (iii) inpatient treatment and (iv) non-structured
treatment for each of (a) adult drug services, (b) adult alcohol
services and (c) young people’s services;

2. Anticipated spend on drug and alcohol treatment in 2014-15,
broken down by: spend on (i) community treatment, (ii) residential
treatment, (iii) inpatient treatment and (iv) non-structured
treatment for each of (a) adult drug services, (b) adult alcohol
services and (c) young people’s services;

3. Anticipated spend on drug and alcohol treatment in 2015-16,
broken down by: spend on (i) community treatment, (ii) residential
treatment, (iii) inpatient treatment and (iv) non-structured
treatment for each of (a) adult drug services, (b) adult alcohol
services and (c) young people’s services;

4. Where applicable, when the contracts for adult drug treatment,
adult alcohol treatment and young people’s specialist treatment
services will expire;

5. If any element of payment by results applies to adult drug
treatment, adult alcohol treatment and young people’s specialist
treatment services;

6. Please explain how the allocations above were calculated.

I believe that the above satisfy the public interest criteria and
are not commercially sensitive data.

I hope that this request is sufficiently clear; should you require
any clarification, please do not hesitate to let me know.

Yours faithfully,

Lauren Garland
