Funding for drug treatment units26th June 2006
Drug treatment centres are to receive an extra £95.2m this year, public health minister Caroline Flint has announced.
The Department of Health, supported by £22m from the Home Office, will provide drug action teams with £394.6m – an increase of more than 30 per cent from last year.
The teams will also be able to bid for a portion of a further £54.9m, for the development of inpatient and residential rehabilitation services in 2007-08.
For every £1 spent on drug treatment, at least £9.50 is saved in crime and health costs, said Ms Flint.
