Funding for alcohol and drug rehab

The request was partially successful.

Dear council team

I am looking for information on the number of people requesting access to residential drug and alcohol rehab in your local authority area.

I am requesting these figures under Freedom of Information legislation over the last five years. I would like to know:

• How many people have requested access to residential drug and alcohol rehabs in the following financial years: 2012/13, 2013/14, 2014/15 as well as 2020/21 and 2021 to present

• Which residential rehabs services are open to those living in your local authority area?

• How many people in your local authority area were funded to attend rehab in the following financial years: 2012/13, 2013/14, 2014/15 as well as 2020/21 and 2021 to present

• Can you confirm the number of times funding was refused for rehab in the following financial years: 2012/13, 2013/14, 2014/15 as well as 2020/21 and 2021 to present

• How much was spent on residential rehab in your local authority area in the following years: 2012/13, 2013/14, 2014/15 as well as 2020/21 and 2021 to present

• From which budget line is this funding pulled? [ie health/LA social work etc]

If this request is unclear in any way, I would be grateful if you could contact me as I understand that under the Freedom of Information Act, you are required to advise and assist requesters. If any of this information is already in the public domain, please can you direct me to it?

If the release of any of this information is prohibited on the grounds of breach of confidence, I ask that you supply me with copies of the confidentiality agreement and remind you that information should not be treated as confidential if such an agreement has not been signed.

I understand that you are required to respond to my request within the 20 working days after you receive this letter. I would be grateful if you could confirm in writing that you have received this request.

Yours sincerely
Karin Goodwin

Yours faithfully,
