Addiction Treatment Budget Cuts by Region

Up until 2012, the amount of money each Council had to spend on drug and alcohol treatment services was ringfenced, until the Government decided to give Councils autonomy over how they spend their yearly Public Health Grants. We believe that this decision was the catalyst for disaster.

We have requested to know how much each Council has spent on substance misuse services in their local area every year since 2013, and the vast majority of Councils have slashed their budgets dramatically in the last six years.

The following data is inclusive of residential rehabilitation, residential detoxification and community services and has been obtained under a Freedom of Information Request by UKAT to the respective Council.

Any data shown with a minus figure is a cut to budget, any whole figure is an increase in budget.

Please feel free to use this data but it must be accredited to UKAT. For further information, interview request or validity, email
