PDF (Interim monitoring report - summary)

This is the second report on Residential Rehabilitation within the Monitoring and Evaluation Programme led by Public Health Scotland. The report presents information on the number of Alcohol and Drug Partnership statutory funded placements, with estimated costs, that were approved between 1 April 2021 and 31 December 2021. Information is provided at a Scotland level, NHS board and each Alcohol and Drug Partnership.     

Main points

  • All thirty Alcohol and Drug Partnerships (ADPs) responded to the data request. Out of the 30 ADPs, 73% approved placements in Q3. This is an increase compared to 50% in Q1 (n=15) and 57% in Q2 (n=17).
  • The most common reason for ADPs submitting a nil return between Q1 and Q3 was developing new clinical pathways into residential rehabilitation. Other reasons included: no referrals being received within the timeframe; low staff capacity within NHS wards which manage detox and short stay rehabilitation, and the ongoing impact of restrictions during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Between 1 October 2021 and 31 December 2021, 114 placements into residential rehabilitation were approved by Alcohol and Drug Partnerships (ADPs) using statutory funding. This equated to a total estimated cost of £794,861. This is an increase of 17 placements compared to Quarter 2.
