S5W-21594: Miles Briggs (Lothian)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 11 February 2019

To ask the Scottish Government how many people have been referred to residential rehabilitation for drug or alcohol misuse in each year since 1999, and how much these referrals cost.

Answered by: Joe FitzPatrick 6 March 2019

The Scottish Government does not hold a breakdown of information on how many people have been referred to residential rehabilitation projects for alcohol and drug addiction since 1999, how much these referrals cost, or the average waiting time information by NHS Board. Service decisions are made by each local area and it would be for individual Health Boards or Alcohol and Drug Partnerships (ADPs) to provide a complete breakdown of this information.
