Dear Scottish Government Health and Social Care Directorates,

I am writing to make a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I would like to please know the number of people in Scotland off methadone from drug recovery programmes set up in the past 10 years.

More specifically I am requesting the following: I would like to know how many people from 2008, 2009,2010,2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 are off methadone from drug recovery programmes the government has set up. I also want to know the amount of money spent in each year that goes into running these programmes paid for by taxpayers money.

I also would like to know the current number of people still on methadone as of January 1st, 2018.

I have provided an example of how this answer might be formatted:
2008 Number of people How much money is paid from taxpayers money
2009 Number of people How much money is paid from taxpayers money
2010 Number of people How much money is paid from taxpayers money

I would like this done for all years I have asked for.

Moreover, I would like to know the number of drug recovery programmes succeeding and failing in all of those years and also done in the same layout.

I would like this information in electronic format, preferably as CSV files.

If my request is denied in whole or in part, I ask that you justify all deletions by reference to specific exemptions of the act.

Please let me know you have received this.

If there are any problems, or you need more information please get in touch.

Yours faithfully,

Natalie Miller
