We do not hold centrally a breakdown by London borough of inpatient treatment services. The review of inpatient treatment recently published by the National Treatment Agency (Ed Day, 2005) found 13 services in London providing inpatient treatment (national health service, voluntary sector and private sector). We have no specific information on the number of beds, client places or admissions to treatment in these services.
specialist units for drug misuse inpatient treatment;
inpatient drug treatment which takes place in general or psychiatric wards; and
detoxification in residential rehabilitation services, prior to admission to the rehabilitation programme.
specialist units: 6,829 admissions;
general/psychiatric wards: 2,077 admissions.
In response to this question, information is mainly given in number of beds available for residential rehabilitation. This is not the same as the number of client places available in treatment services during any one year, as one bed may be occupied by a number of clients, depending on need, during the year.

It also includes information specifically for patients, carers and the general public.
